Our group is focused on statistical mechanics and its applications. Much of the research studies systems which are far from equilibrium. These often display unusual dynamical and collective behavior which can not be seen in equilibrium. In particular, we are currently working on active systems and driven diffusive systems.
Previous interests include non-equilibrium fluctuations, molecular motors, translocation of polymers, conformations of DNA molecules, chemotaxis of bacteria, target location by proteins and physics of vortices.
