Research interests

Dr Savin's research interests include:

  • Structure, mechanics and thermodynamics of living matter
  • Biophysics
  • Materials Science
  • Transport Phenomena

Strategic themes


We develop both theoretical and experimental methods to study complex fluids and living matter over a wide range of scales. We are particularly interested in structures, mechanics and thermodynamics.

Our ultimate goal is to uncover the physical rules that explain the macroscopic properties and functions of materials, tissues or organs from the behavior of their "elementary" constituents.
