Université Nice Sophia Antipolis member of Université Côte d'Azur Bureau 2W 605 Nice, France Fax: +33-4 93 51 79 74 We use tools from theoretical physics to understand complex biological systems. In close collaboration with experimentalists, we perform data analysis and develop theoretical models using elements from dynamical systems, non-equilibrium statistical mechanics, complex network theory, and/or stochastic processes. Our reasearch has two main axes: ## Active MatterCharacterization of self-propelled particle motion, transition from individual to collective motion, collective motion in confinement and in heterogeneous media. We use active matter theory to understand collective behavior in bacteria and sheep herds. ## Complex NetworksBipartite networks, robustness of finite complex networks, topological properties of Peer-to-Peer networks, and dynamic networks. |
