I am a professor doing academic research; my primary appointment is in the department of Biology at Tufts University, and I am also an associate faculty at the Wyss Institute at Harvard. I direct the Allen Discovery Center at Tufts and my group uses biophysics, computational modeling, and behavioral science to understand how cellular collectives make decisions during embryogenesis, regeneration, and cancer.

My own interests focus on diverse intelligence and unconventional embodied minds, and our work spans across conceptual frameworks, basic bench research, and practical applications being pushed toward the clinic in regenerative medicine. We also do some work in AI, and the bioengineering of novel living machines.

My academic site can be found at The Levin Lab, including all of the peer-reviewed publications and links to academic talks and interviews. Follow me on Twitter as @drmichaellevin.
