Assistant professor, Department of Physics
areas of expertise: biophysics, systems biology, evolutionary dynamics, physics, biology
Jeff Gore's laboratory studies evolutionary dynamics by combining microbial experiments with ideas from physics, mathematics and economics.
As a Pappalardo Fellow in the department, he used approaches from game theory to understand how yeast cells cooperate to grow on the sugar sucrose, yielding insight into the conditions required for the evolution of cooperative behaviors.
Gore received his PhD at the University of California, Berkeley, as a Hertz Fellow, where he developed new techniques to manipulate individual biological molecules such as DNA. Over the years, Gore’s biophysics research has appeared in Nature, Science, and the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
