Lai-Sang Young is working to expand the geometric and ergodic theory of chaotic systems to high-dimensional systems, including networks, stochastic dynamical systems, and systems that are out of equilibrium. She is leading a multiyear project to build a biologically realistic computational model of the visual cortex, seeking to unravel the cortical mechanisms behind human vision.
