Associate Professor of Physics
- Building models of constraint percolation inspired by jamming in granular and glassy systems.
- Studying the interplay between morphology and rheology in the actin cytoskeleton via rigidity percolation.
- Looking for discontinuous, disorder-driven localization transitions in quantum systems, a.k.a. quantum constraint percolation.
