Complex Biological Systems & Active Matter Group

In September 2020, I moved to CYU, where I am actively trying to obtain funding and institutional support to establish a group of Complex Biological Systems & Active Matter. While I was in Nice I managed to establish a small, but very productive, research group. The funding came from the ANR JC project BactPhys, from a collaboration research project with an industrial partner, Biocodex, as well as from CONACYT (Mexico), CONICET (Argentina), and DFG (Germany) via individual scholarships provided to PhD students and postdocs that join the group. The list below and the picture above correspond to the members of my (former) group in Nice. I am indebted to all of them.
