11/5/15 Radio Show feat. Elizabeth Davison and Anastasia Quintana on the Power of Networks

Elizabeth Davison is a graduate student in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering here at Princeton University where she studies the capability of using networks to measure the processes in our brain. We speak generally on what a network is, what are neural networks vs. “a network of neurons”, and her work specifically, then we broaden to applications.

Next, with Tasha Quintana, doctoral candidate at the Nicholas School of Environment at Duke University, we discuss one powerful application of networks — information sharing in fisheries in Baja California. Then we go on to discuss work to broaden successful networks in Baja to larger networks, like the environment we all share.

For more information on this fascinating topic, Elizabeth Davison recommends:

Another beautiful representation of networks and information flow. This image is a network of information flow in the sciences through citations.
