Research Interests

  • Physics of active particles
  • Nonequilibrium statistical physics
  • Driven soft and biological systems

We are interested in the broad research areas of active matter, nonequilibrium statistical physics, driven soft matter and biological systems. We use analytical and numerical methods to study these systems both at the single particle level and also at large length and time scales. Additionally, in suitable situations, we employ methods that bridge these two separate realms.
