We are interested in biological phenomena that regulate cell shape. Our research focus is broadly divided into three areas, although the demarcation is a fuzzy boundary. We use principles of mechanics coupled with signal transduction to model and identify principles underlying cellular phenomena. 

We have an opening for a postdoctoral fellow in the lab as a part of the MURI project on Bioinspired Low Energy Information Processing. Please contact Padmini via email with a research statement, a CV with publication record, and three references.
