Sarah Loos works in nonequilibrium statistical physics at the intersection of stochastic thermodynamics, nonlinear dynamics, and control and information theory. Loos is particularly interested in memory effects, entropy production, and fluctuations at nonequilibrium phase transitions. After completing her PhD at the Technical University of Berlin, she worked as a postdoctoral researcher at Leipzig University, Germany, and at the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), Italy. She has been awarded several research grants, including a postdoctoral fellowship by the German Research Foundation and a Marie Curie fellowship, with which she is currently working on information flows in active systems at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP), University of Cambridge.


Smooth Control of Active Matter

A theoretical study finds that the most energy-efficient way to control an active-matter system is to drive it at finite speed—unlike passive-matter systems. Read More »
