Check out the pages in the research area of my website for some background information on the type of research I do. I focus on soft-matter physics at the interface of materials science and biology. In Zvonimir Dogic's lab, we study active matter systems composed of biological components. I have primarily focused on an Active Gel and an Active Nematic during my PhD.
