Dr Thierry Savin
Dr Thierry Savin is pleased to consider applications from prospective PhD students.
My research group develops methods to study the dynamics and mechanics of living matter. Our current interests include organogenesis in the developing embryo, models and measurements of tissue growth, or diseases that alter blood flow. Our expertise combines both theoretical (statistical and soft matter physics, thermodynamics) and experimental (rheology, microfabrication, microfluidics) approaches, to assess the role of physical forces and flows in biological processes.
