Welcome to the home page of
the Complex and Biological Fluids Group!

 


Our group investigates the behavior of complex and biological fluids including blood, various polymeric solutions, and active liquids. These fluids are generally viscoelastic and may show incredibly complex rheology and dynamics. In particular, we focus on the flow behavior of blood cells in health and disease (e.g., malaria, cancer), on the rheological properties of cell/capsule suspensions and polymer solutions, and on the behavior of microswimmers. Our research interests also include multiscale modeling and hybrid algorithms that bridge atomistic, mesoscopic, and continuum scales. We employ various numerical methods, computer simulations, and analytical theory to study the dynamics of complex and biological fluids.

Our group is a part of the Institute of Complex Systems (ICS) at the Forschungszentrum Jülich (FZJ), Germany. The group closely collaborates with the Theoretical Soft Matter and Biophysics (ICS-2) group at the Institute of Complex Systems.


We are open to new contacts and collaborations. Feel free to contact us or visit us on the web.
