Congratulations to Radhika Nagpal

I'm very, very happy to report that Radhika Nagpal has been offered tenure at Harvard.

Radhika works in several areas, including biologically inspired multi-agent systems, which covers such areas as modular and swarm robotics;  and computational models for biological systems, such as collective behavior and multicellular morphogenesis.  (That's a mouthful.)

If you want to see her work in action, you have to go to her lab's Youtube channel.  Check out robots laying sandbags, or demonstrations of the very very tiny Kilobots acting in concert.  Or check out cell division in a larval fruit fly.  She also the faculty lead on the Harvard side for the Harvard-MIT robot soccer team.  Here's an older but still cool news article on the team

We're all excited by the excellent news.  Congratulations Radhika!
