Personal profile

Research interests

Collective movement is a pervasive phenomenon in the living world, encompassing a diverse range of organisms, from protein motors to bacteria colonies, schools of fish, and flocks of birds. Despite their distinct biological characteristics, these systems display strikingly similar patterns and dynamics, implying the presence of fundamental principles that govern their behavior.

Our research is centered on investigating the mechanisms behind self-shaping and tissue morphogenesis. By comparing experiments and theory, we aim to uncover the fundamental laws of physics that govern the organization of these systems.

In the Living Matter Lab, we are developing novel techniques to measure and control the organization of multicellular structures. Our experiments rely on microscopy, microfabricated environments, and image analysis algorithms.
