  • I am working with Max Bi on problems related to theoretical biophysics.
  • I am interested in active biological matter in general. I use various soft matter tools to build coarse-grained models of biological systems, like, filamentous structures to tissues. Analyses of microscopy images is an integral part of my research.
  • I am also collaborating with the groups of Jin-Ah Park, Jeffrey Fredberg in the Harvard School of Public Health, Boston, USA and Josef Kaes in Leipzig University, Germany.
