My research lies at the intersection of mathematics, physics, and biology. I am actively interested in a variety of biophysical problems including multi-flagellated bacterial motility, cellular adhesion, and the mechanics of eukaryotic nuclei. A theorist by training, I collaborate on these projects with talented experimentalists from the University of Minnesota, Institut Curie, and Stanford University. Before arriving at Clare College, I was a postdoctoral research associate of Jean-François Joanny at the Collège de France in Paris. I carried out my doctoral studies here in Cambridge at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, under the supervision of Eric Lauga.
