My research focuses on both fundamental aspects of statistical physics and its applications in complex biological systems.


Some projects and research interests:


  • Developing finite-time control frameworks to manipulate the dynamics of fast-evolving pathogen populations

  • Elucidating the role of thermodynamic constraints in fitness of an organism such as metabolic power consumption and molecular transport

  • Studying phase separation and transport properties in active (biological) mixtures
