Artemy Kolchinsky works at the intersection of nonequilibrium thermodynamics, information theory, and complexity science. He is broadly interested in understanding the relationship between information and energy in physical and biological systems. He spent several years as a postdoctoral researcher at the Santa Fe Institute, New Mexico, as well as at the Universal Biology Institute at the University of Tokyo. Currently, he is a Marie Curie fellow at the Pompeu Fabra University, Spain, where he is using techniques from nonequilibrium thermodynamics to study the origin of life.


The Cost of Sending a Bit Across a Living Cell

Calculations of the minimum energy a cell requires to transmit a signal between two internal components could help scientists understand how energy and information combine to produce living systems. Read More »
