About

I am a theoretical physicist interested in biology. Specifically, I work on the mechanical problems that arise at all scales of life, from biomolecules to cells and tissues. I have a taste for minimal theories, which I develop by drawing inspiration from Soft Matter and Hydrodynamics. I normally aim at analytical results, but I know when to let go of the chalk and code my way through a problem. I have always been working in close contact with experimentalists with different backgrounds, from physics to biology.
