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