My research interests lie in condensed matter theory. Recent work encompasses liquid crystals, granular media and glasses, polymers, non-linear hydrodynamics, topological insulators, metamaterials, active matter, and machine learning. Often the rich phenomenology of many body systems arises from the interplay between strong non-linearities, disorder and physics far from equilibrium that I explore using analytical and numerical tools in close collaboration with experimentalists.
