Recently, our Epidemiological Modeling team published a paper in the American Physical Society’s Physical Review E: statistical, nonlinear, and soft matter physics journal.

Simulation-Based Engineering Fosters Innovation and Invention By Katie Miller

 The Lab utilizes modeling, simulations, and analysis throughout project prototyping and development to maximize our understanding and minimize time.

EMOD Publishes Paper on Malaria By Katie Miller

The epidemiological team (EMOD) at IV Lab has had a banner of a few weeks.  They are putting the final touches on their malaria modeling software and Philip Eckhoff, Principal Investigator, recently had a new paper published in the peer-reviewed open access journalPLOS One. 

Vaccine Wastage

One of the topics Intellectual Ventures Lab scientists are researching are ways to impact vaccine wastage in vaccination programs throughout the globe.

The Road Ahead for Climate Change

The argument that cleaner energy sources are needed to stop global warming isn’t a new one, but what exactly will it actually take to right the climate change ship and how long will that take? Today, Environmental Research Letters published a paper by our CEO, Nathan Myhrvold and Stanford’s Ken Caldeira that explores those questions with a holistic new approach.

The Turbulence of Dimples By Ozgur Yildirim

Turbulence is a type of flow characterized by chaotic and rapid changes in the properties of flow. Yet even though it is commonplace, the physics and mathematics of turbulence are extraordinarily complex, and still very active areas of research.

Blame it on the Rain? By Guillaume Chabot-Couture

In a recent post to the arXiv, physicists from the University of Washington show that radioactive material from the explosion of the Fukushima reactor #1 started arriving in Seattle on March 18th, 7 days after it was rocked by an explosion. 

Extreme Seattle Weather By Guillaume Chabot-Couture

According to the SeaTac airport’s historical weather data, dating back to 1948, there have been only 53 snow storms lasting more than 1 day in Seattle (about 0.84 per year). In this context, it is not surprising that Seattle does not invest in snow clearing equipment.
