Principal fields of interest: Biological Physics, Soft Active Matter, Fluid Dynamics
My research is framed within the fields of soft/active matter, biological physics, and fluid dynamics. So far, I have studied systems involving small-scale interfacial flows, bulk and interfacial rheology, elasticity, and membrane dynamics. Currently, I am interested in several research areas within the context of biophysics and living matter, namely the dynamics of eukaryotic cells and tissues, and the physics of bacteria in complex habitats. I employ theory and accurate numerical methods to unravel the physics of these complex systems.
