NEWS!


  1. Paper on the onset of swimming appears on the arXiv:1501.05143 [physics.flu-dyn].


  2. Some publicity for our PNAS paper on local packing and entropy in Nature Materials [News and Views] and in physics.org.


  3. I spent part of the summer at Harvard (SEAS) as a visiting scholar in Michael Brenner's group.


  4. I won EURAXESS North America competition for Marie-Curie fellows and was invited to give a popular science talk about my work at Columbia University. Here's the video of me speaking about packing, the other talks and the flyer of the event.


  5. This is a video of me speaking about granular dynamics at CSAWW (Complex System Academic Advanced Workshops), University of Michigan.

I am a Marie-Curie post-doctoral fellow in Daan Frenkel's group at the University of Cambridge UK in Theoretical Chemistry. Previously I worked with Sharon Glotzer at the University of Michigan in Chemical Engineering.


I am interested in self-assembly, packing, granular dynamics, the role of the shape in soft matter systems, fluid dynamics, swimmers and active matter.
