Greg Huber, Ph.D.

Chan Zuckerberg Biohub


Greg Huber is director of the Theory Group at Chan Zuckerberg Biohub and a biophysicist with a background in statistical mechanics and soft-matter physics. Prior to joining Biohub, he was Deputy Director of the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics in Santa Barbara. He has researched and taught at the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Arizona, University of Chicago, University of Connecticut, University of Massachusetts, the University of California, Berkeley, and the University of California, Santa Barbara, and he has worked on range of problems from branching networks to how coffee drops dry.

The Theory Group at Biohub seeks to deepen our knowledge and control of biological processes, structure and function through physical and mathematical theory. Research areas include: physical models of organelles; modeling of cytoskeletal and organelle networks; models of molecular ensembles; protein-protein correlations and localization; stochastic models of dynamics and pattern formation in biological matter; statistical mechanics of cell states and populations; and dynamics and selection of cell populations and lineages during development, tumor growth and evolution.
