|MEMPHYS - Center for Biomembrane Physics|
I am an Associate Professor at MEMPHYS, which is attached to the Department of Physics and Chemistry. A one-page CV is here.
The aim of my research is to use coarse-grained simulation techniques to model aspects of a living cell. Current projects include using parallel Dissipative Particle Dynamics to study membrane invagination on 100 - 500 nm length scales, and measuring the stress profile across vesicle membranes.
The techniques I use are particle-based simulation methods such as Dissipative Particle Dynamics, Brownian dynamics, Molecular Dynamics, and theoretical tools such as reaction-diffusion equations, non-linear differential equations.
