Masoud Mohseni is a Senior Research Scientist at Google, where he develops novel machine learning algorithms that fundamentally rely on quantum dynamics. He has made significant contributions to quantum transport, quantum measurement and open quantum systems approaches to biology.
Yasser Omar is Assistant Professor at the University of Lisbon and leads the Physics of Information Group at Instituto de Telecomunicaes. His research is centered on quantum information theory, quantum transport, and their interface with biology.
Gregory S. Engel is an Associate Professor at the Institute for Biophysical Dynamics and the James Franck Institute at the University of Chicago. His group is working on creating synthetic mimics of biological systems.
Martin B. Plenio is Alexander von Humboldt Professor and Director of the Institute of Theoretical Physics, Ulm University. His main contributions are in the fields of quantum information, quantum optics, and the development of the theory of quantum effects in biology.
An Introduction to Systems Biology: Design Principles of Biological Circuits builds a solid foundation for the intuitive understanding of general principles. It encourages the reader to ask why a system is designed in a particular way and then proceeds to answer with simplified models.
