Research interests:

I am interested in studying active nematics, which are materials composed of live rod-shaped molecules. Active nematics is an active field of research predominantly using computational and theoretical approaches. I am interested in taking an experimental angle for understanding the real world applications of active nematics using the rod shaped bacteria, Myxococcus Xanthus, as a model system.
