Please join us for the Global Lunchbox, a weekly forum convened by the Weinberg College Center for International and Area Studies at Northwestern University featuring conversations with scholars about their current research on a range of critical global issues.

This week we will be joined by Luis A.N. Amaral, Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering. 

Amaral conducts and directs research that provides insight into the emergence, evolution, and stability of complex social and biological systems. His research aims to address some of the most pressing challenges facing humanity, including the mitigation of errors in healthcare settings, the characterization of the conditions fostering innovation and creativity, or the growth limits imposed by sustainability. Professor Amaral has published over 190 scientific peer-reviewed papers in leading scientific journals. Those papers have been cited in excess of 30 thousand times. His research has been featured in numerous media sources, both in the US and abroad.

Professor Amaral has received a CAREER award from the National Institutes of Health in 2003, was named to the 2006 class of Distinguished Young Scholars in Medical Research by the W. M. Keck Foundation, and has been selected as an Earlier Career Scientist by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. He is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, of the American Physical Society, of the Network Science Society, and of the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineers.
