Short Bio:

Sara is as an assistant professor at the Physics Department. She graduated with a B.Sc and M.Sc in physics from the American University of Beirut with focus on network complexity and dynamics. She then earned her Ph.D in Physics from McGill University studying out-of-equilibrium systems with focus on living cells morphologies. She was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Couzin Lab at Princeton University studying collective behavior, and the Gordon & Betty Moore Postdoctoral Fellow at GALCIT at California Institute of Technology focusing on cell mobility. Prior to joining AUB, she was a Researcher at the National Center for Remote Sensing of the Lebanese CNRS studying city-scale out-of-equilibrium processes like forced refugees' migration and investigating the relationship between urban morphology and energy. Her research focuses on statistical physics and complexity science applied to living systems and urban environments.
