I am theoretical physicist working on active and living matter. I frequently collaborate with experimentalists who study fundamental biological processes at the cell, tissue and organism scale with the goal to identify minimal physical principles that help guiding these processes. This often inspires new theoretical work on topics in non-equilibrium soft matter physics, where I am broadly interested in the self-organization of mechanical and chemical patterns in active matter, the emergent shape dynamics of membranes and active surfaces, liquid crystals in complex geometries, chirality in active systems, as well as in developing coarse-graining and inference approaches that are directly applicable to experimental data.
