Growth dynamics – what unites growth processes of cells and entire ecosystems?

The Alexander von Humboldt foundation has awarded Dr. Ian A. Hatton a Humboldt Research Fellowship. In a two-years research stay at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences in Leipzig, Ian Hatton plans to expand his studies of biological scaling and growth dynamics. In a joint project with the Max Planck research group leader Dr. Matteo Smerlak the post-doctoral scientist will investigate biological growth dynamics across a multitude of systems and scales in the hope of identifying unifying aspects of their development.
