Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems
I am a theoretical biophysicist at the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems. Following my PhD in Istanbul on statistical physics, I started working on biophysics problems and moved to US, then to France and recently to Germany.
Biological systems exhibit a cascade of emergent order propagating from molecular scales to the organism level and ecosystems. I study a broad spectrum of biophysical problems from mesoscale processes to ecosystems at the interface of biology, statistical physics, and soft-matter theory with a multidisciplinary collaboration network.
Some projects and research interests:
Metabolism and morphogenesis, tissue dynamics and controlled pattern formation
Bioenergetics, dynamics and evolution of biomolecular networks
Control of stochastic biological processes at various scales
Phase separation and transport properties in active (biological) mixtures
