Bio-inspired active matter
We are a group of physicists, biochemists, and material scientists interested in understanding the origin of collective behaviors in biomimetic active materials.
Active matter: activity-driven phase transitions, topological active fluids, folding of soft materials
Biophysics: nematic tissues, collective cell migration, cell-cell communication
Ben and Bennett won the best poster prize at (resp.) GRC Liquids Crystals and GRC Soft Condensed matter 2023. Congrats!
Jeremy, Salman and Guillaume are representing the lab at APS March Meeting 2023 in Las Vegas.
Welcome to Gauri and Greg!
Brandeis MRSEC Winter School: what a blast! Nice to share our work with all MRSEC members for 3 days in New Hampshire.
Check out our recent work published last October, great job Najma and Guillaume.
Congrats Najma on receiving the Berko prize for exceptional research accomplishments
