Research summary

New PhD opportubnity in Bio-SoftRobotics - deadline 7th October - Visit our webpage at

Our research focuses on novel questions and unexplained phenomena in a broad range of physical systems found in nature. We are inspired by engineering and mathematical problems found in biology, and the arts. This includes areas such as small-scale fluid mechanics, solid mechanics and elasticity, biological soft-matter, transport phenomena and diffusion, pattern formation and self-organization, and biomimetic devices.

We use a combination of analytical derivations, numerical computations and empirical investigations in areas ranging from animal and human fertilization, swimming of microorganisms, especially human ...
