At ITP we like to do our work rather than figure out what pre-determined “area:” it might fall into. As a result, these grouping are, to our minds, rather arbitrary. Our best people and projects draw strains from and cross-fertilize multiple subject areas. And though the following document was produced using a collaborative Wiki website, chances are it will be out of date by the time it is printed out and in your hands.
Still, it serves as a good taste of the kinds of interests our faculty, residents, and students are now pursuing at ITP, as well as some of the opportunities for you to collaborate with us.For each of these areas you will get a little history, some examples of current projects or research directions, and how these interests have already manifest in the curriculum.
