Theoretical Physics of Living Matter

Current Research:

We study the mechanics of the growing cortex, with emphasis on the emergence of brain folds. We use continuum models to study the how different mechanical aspects, such as inhomogeneities and viscosity, affect the final conformations of the brain. Our objective is to create a model that can describe the cephalic development from the early fetal stages to the developed brain at birth.
