I use tools from theoretical physics to investigate the microscopic forces governing biological systems, such as biopolymers and fluid membranes. My research is strongly data-driven, therefore I collaborate closely with molecular biologists and biochemists that perform experiments. Thus far, I have worked on DNA packing in bacteriophages and on membrane remodeling during endocytosis. My models are mainly analytical and rely on tools such as nonlinear physics and elasticity.
