About

David Grier is a Professor of Physics at New York University and a founding member of NYU's Center for Soft Matter Research. His group's experimental research program focuses on the fundamental organizing principles responsible for self-organization in strongly interacting many-body systems. As part of this effort, the Grier group has pioneered such generally useful experimental techniques as particle tracking based on digital video microscopy, holographic optical trapping, and most recently quantitative holographic video microscopy.
