Vincenzo Vitelli working with LEGO

The research interests of the group span several areas at the interface between science, engineering and applied mathematics. Recent work encompasses biophysics, active matter, machine learning, robotics, metamaterials, topological insulators, hydrodynamics, dynamical systems, liquid crystals, granular media, glasses and polymers. Often the rich phenomenology of these many body systems arises from the interplay between strong non-linearities, disorder and physics far from equilibrium that we explore using analytical and numerical tools in close collaboration with experimentalists.
