I am a PhD student in the Biological Physics and Mechanics group, supervised by Prof Eric Lauga. I am generally interested in fluid dynamical problems in microbiological contexts at various length scales, inside and outside the cell. I have worked on flows and transport inside the intracellular networks of actively pinching tubules which comprise the endoplasmic reticulum; collective motion of bacteria in cylindrical confinement; and a load-dependent resistive-force theory for helical filaments. Problems I am currently researching include bacterial locomotion near rigid surfaces.
