Puckett Lab

Soft and Living Matter

James Puckett is an Associate Professor in the Physics Department at Gettysburg College. His research is in the general area of Soft Condensed Matter Physics, where the focus is on connecting microscopic interactions with macroscopic behavior of complex systems, ranging from granular materials to collective animal behavior. These out-of-equilibrium systems can form self-organized patterns and exhibit emergent behavior. Follow the Research link for more information about specific projects.
