Cytoskeleton Assembly & Mechanics

Active & Adaptive Materials


Epithelial Morphogenesis


We study how living matter emerges from collections of molecules to control physiology of cells and tissues.  We apply this understanding to design and build new types of active and adaptive soft materials and engineer the shape and dynamics of cells and tissue. 

Our research interests span fields of cellular biophysics, epithelial and endothelial biology, cell adhesion & migration, active & adaptive matter, cytoskeleton dynamics and mechanics and cell mechanotransduction.
