Research interests

From a biological point of view, my interest lies on the mechanical and dynamical processes in the cytoskeleton of cells, and of its individual components. Here I want to address the question: how and why is a certain order created, and what is its function? Specifically, my focus is on:

  • Mechanics of biopolymers
  • Dynamics of the bacterial cell division
  • Self-organization in active systems

From a physicist’s perspective, my research projects connect various topics:

  • Statistical mechanics of polymer dynamics
  • Pattern formation and critical phenomena in active matter systems
  • Active hydrodynamics and turbulence
