Dr Alexandre Kabla is pleased to consider applications from prospective PhD students.

Research description

My main research activities focus on the mechanical properties of soft disordered materials, including foams, granular materials, as well as biomaterials and living tissues. Current interests are fibrous networks rheology, embryo-morphogenesis and collective effects in cell populations.
