Welcome to my personal webpage. Here you can find an overview of my scientific research interests, as well as useful contact and curriculum information.
My research is driven by a profound interest in statistical physics and nonlinear dynamics.
I am interested in the structure and flow behavior of soft materials like grains or dense suspensions. My main focus is to link the microscopic particle properties to a more tangible macroscopic bulk behavior. Soil, which is made up of countless interacting grains is a perfect example of soft granular materials. When soil is sheared, the flow is confined to narrow regions called "flowing zones". During the PhD, I studied these flowing zones in the Split-bottom Geometry.Made August 2014 by myself with help of my colleague Nicolas Rivas.
