Mehran Kardar


Brief summary: I am a theoretical physicist, specializing in Statistical Mechanics. My research has spanned a variety of topics, and the best indication of my current interests can be gleaned from recent publications posted on the archives. General areas of interest include:

  1. Soft Matter and Statistical Physics: Non-equilibrium phenomena, anomalous transport, disordered systems, polymers.
  2. Fluctuation-Induced Phenomena: Casimir forces, electromagnetic fluctuations in and out of equilibrium.
  3. Biologically Physics: Cortical patterns, knots in proteins, immune response.
