Projects and Research Interests

Currently, I’m working as a PhD student in the field of theoretical biophysics in the group of Prof. Erwin Frey. My research focuses mainly on non-equilibrium processes in cell-biology.

On a biological level, this includes:

  • Microtubule regulation by associated proteins
  • Intracellular transport on microtubules
  • Biomolecular mechanisms employed by molecular motors
  • Aggregation processes related to Z-ring formation in bacterial cells
  • Polymerization and depolymerization processes of biofilaments

On a physical level, my research projects deal with:

  • Exclusion processes and driven diffusive systems
  • Analytic methods for non-equilibrium systems
  • Non-equilibrium phase transitions
  • Collective systems of self-propelled particles
