My research so far has focused on theoretical modeling of biological systems using methods from nonlinear dynamics and statistical mechanics. My PhD was in Physics & Systems Biology, on the topic of ``Formation and Cooperative Behaviour of Protein Complexes on the Cell Membrane'' with a very close collaboration with the Institute of Medical Sciences at the University of Aberdeen. During my postdoc years at the University of Oldenburg I have been addressing questions of biological processes in fluid flows. This research spans a range of different topics from sedimentation and interaction of inertial particles in fluid flows, to population dynamics in flows and active chemotactic swimmers. Recently, I have focuced on microbial ecology of soil. I have worked extensively in interdisciplinary environments, and am able to communicate and get ideas across different research fields. Bellow I give more details about my past research topics.
