Biophysics

Our research in biophysics is two-fold. On one hand, we try to understand non-equilibrium fluctuations using statistical physics. On the other hand the research focuses on the physical modeling of biological phenomena, mostly at the cellular level.

Our work on fluctuations has rather broad applications to arbitrary non-equilibrium systems, but also covers bio-mimetism. Topics of interest are stochastic thermodynamics, biomimetic membrane systems and bio-filaments dynamics


We also have been interested by the cell membrane for many years, and are still active in the field of membrane proteins in general, and the cellular deformation they induce in particular. The main current interest in this field involves non-equilibrium processes, and in particular the role of (energy-consuming) fluxes of proteins and other membrane components on some crucial cellular function such cellular trafficking.
