Dynamics of microsystems
Colloids, bacteria and micromachines all display complex dynamical behaviour. This is due to the dynamics of an object at this scale critically depends on its physical interactions and shape. In my work I develop models to understand and model these emergent phenomena.
I am always happy to hear from keen prospective PhD students.
I am particularly interested to hear from students with interested in slow viscous flows, micro-machines, and collective dynamics.
