Corina joined the Princeton faculty in February 2013 after completing her term as a Junior Fellow at the Harvard Society of Fellows (2010-2012). She obtained her B.A.('06), M.A.('08) and PhD ('09) in Mathematics from Harvard University. She is a Guggenheim Fellow, an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellow, an ESA Early Career Fellow, and a Kavli Frontiers of Science Fellow of the National Academy of Sciences. Her research takes a comparative cross-scales approach to the study of complex adaptive systems: how they originate, assemble, interact with their environment, and change.
