Active systems, especially in the living realm, are often dense: examples are biological cells in monolayers and tissues, bacteria constituting biofilms, or extended clusters of active colloids. Can we understand why these dense ensembles often exhibit significantly different properties from what is expected of the individual constituents?

My research interests are the modeling and theory of non-equilibrium and nonlinear effects in soft matter, bio-inspired and biological systems. I am broadly interested in soft matter (polymers, complex liquids and hydrodynamics, liquid crystals, membranes) and biological systems (cytoskeleton, cells, bacteria) under non-equilibrium situations; especially in pattern formation, self-organization, and force generation and transfer in intrinsically non-equilibrium ('active') systems.
