Scientific interests

Living matter is a traditional field of interest to cellular and molecular biology. Because our understanding and knowledge of these complex out of equilibrium systems have considerably increased in the last two decades, the interfaces between biology and physics have opened new perspectives on questions which are of interest in biology. Hopefully, these vigorous trades across the barriers between the two disciplines will help in a better understanding of the physical mechanisms at work at the scale of the cell. In particular, cell adhesion and cell motility are functions where the mechanical properties of the cytoskeleton, the polymerization mechanisms of the actin network and the adhesive bonds play an essential role. My current scientific interest focuses on the statistical mechanic theory of the bio-adhesion and force generation processes in close collaboration with scientists working in the lab.
