Field of research

Odd Diffusivity

My research focuses on the odd diffusion systems, such as colloidal systems subjected to Lorentz forces and chiral active particles. The dynamics of such systems can be described by a novel diffusion coefficient (tensor) emerging as a consequence of breaking time-reversalsymmetry. In the same way that odd viscosity generates normal stresses in the direction perpendicular to shear flow, odd diffusivity generates additional rotational fluxes perpendicular to typical diffusive fluxes. I analytically and computationally address such problems.

Many-Body Systems

I am interested in many-body systems, such as a collection of active particles and a system of magnetic hard spheres with a focus on the dynamical properties such as phase transition, characterization of the self and collective diffusion, etc.
