Robert Austin, Ph.D.
Professor, Department of Physics
The Robert H. Austin Research Group in Biophysics is a research group based in the physics department of Princeton University which probes the biological limits of evolving organisms under stress. Dr. Austin's research focuses primarily on the use of microarrays and nanotechnology to further the physical understanding of biological processes, such as the dynamics of cells when subjected to stress. His lab ultimately seeks to understand, and possibly guide, the evolution of microrganisms by culturing them inside custom-made microenvironments.
