We apply the methods from statistical physics and fluid dynamics to study the dynamics of synthetic active systems – either colloidal, actuated with magnetic fields, or biochemical, consisting of biopolymers and motor proteins. [more]
We study the self-organization and transport properties of soft matter that is locally driven out of equilibrium via chemical reactions, with particular focus on the physics of living matter at the subcellular level. [more]
How do complex dynamics and patterns in living systems emerge from stochastic molecular interactions in the cell, how are they coordinated at the population/tissue level, and what role do environmental constraints and interactions play in shaping and maintaining them? [more]
We use the framework of nonequilibrium statistical mechanics to characterize the self-organized behavior of active systems. [more]
We propose and analyse minimal models that capture the essential features of complex systems operating out of equilibrium. Currently we are focussed on systems where microscopic interactions are non-reciprocal, that is, they break the action-reaction symmetry. [more]
