I am a Principal investigator of a PRIMA SNSF Grant at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, within the Environmental Microfluidics Group of Prof. Roman Stocker at ETH Zurich. My research falls at the interface between fluid dynamics, soft matter physics and biology, on a topic that presents both a range of fundamental scientific questions and a wealth of practical implications: the formation of bacterial biofilms in flow.
