Amitabha Nandi
Assistant Professor
Research Interests: 

The research in my group focuses on the physics of biological systems. We study biophysical processes at the cellular and tissue scales using theoretical and computational techniques. We are interested in understanding how an observed physical or mechanical process is regulated by the underlying bio-chemical process(es) and vice versa. To do this, we use methods from statistical physics, nonlinear dynamics and soft-matter physics.

Research Interests:

  • Collective phenomena in biological active matter
  • Pattern formation during morphogenesis
  • Active and passive transport inside cells


Selected Publications: 
  • Active dynamics of tissue shear flow.
