Biological Physics & Mechanics


The Biological Physics & Mechanics research group in DAMTP focuses on using theoretical, computational, and experimental tools to understand natural phenomena. Our research approach is interdisciplinary and one in which classical & statistical physics, applied mathematics, and continuum mechanics come together to unravel and quantify the biological world. Most of our current research focuses on the cellular world, from membranes, flagella, and the dynamics of single-cell motility to cell populations and the biophysics of multicellularity. Other research interests include cardiovascular and respiratory flows, pattern formation, complex fluids, bioconvection, fish swimming and biological locomotion, interfacial phenomena, and general phenomena in continuum mechanics.
