Welcome to Mitarai Lab

We use theoretical methods from physics to investigate complex systems and living systems, and in turn use inspirations from those systems to develop new concepts in physics models. We study phenomena in various scales, from intracellular processes, collective behaviors of cells and agents, to species competition in ecological scale, with tools from dynamical systems, stochastic processes, and individual based models.

Mitarai Lab is part of Biocomplexity group, CMoL (Center for Models of Life), and located at the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen.


  • The project "Bacteria approaching zero growth: Continuous or Discontinuous Phase Transition? " will be funded by Villum Experiment programme from 2020 for 2 years.
