I am a postdoc in the Department of Physics at Brandeis University studying soft-condensed matter physics with my adviser, Zvonimir Dogic. I focus on a biologically based active matter system composed of reconstituted cytoskeletal proteins which allows us to explore physics of systems that exist far-from-equilibrium. I expect to complete my degree in the Spring of 2016. I am interested in biologically relevant research at the interface of physics and biology.
Active microtubule bundles spontaneously assemble and form cilia-like beating oscillations.
