Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering and, by courtesy, of Mechanical Engineering
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe Zia group seeks to unite the deeply connected fields of suspension mechanics and cell biology, to show the role of physics in biological cell fitness. With theory and computation we ask:
1. Is Brownian motion alone sufficient to power life-essential processes in biological cells, and how does this connect cell fitness or even to the origin of life?
2. Do colloidal phase transitions really arrest?
3. Can Einstein's fluctuation-dissipation theory be expanded well beyond equilibrium?
