Principal Investigator

Trained as a Bioengineer, I am interested in studying biosystems in a multidisciplinary framework. In the lab, we combine tools of applied cell biology with concepts of soft matter physics and computational tools to unravel interesting phenomena in biological systems. Outside lab, I enjoy playing badminton and taking long walks in the woods. If you are interested in joining us, or looking for a collaboration, or just want to have a chat about research, please get in touch.
