In the Statistical and Biological Physics (SBP) group we investigate classical and quantum aspects of complex systems, both in and out of thermal equilibrium. Our emphasis is on the study of soft condensed matter and in particular of biological and biomimetic macromolecular systems.

Ongoing research projects in the SBP group include advancing theoretical and computational frameworks as well as conducting phenomenological investigations, in close connection with experimental colleagues.

This field of research is quickly advancing and is intrinsically multi-disciplinary: as a consequence, our theoretical physics-based methods are interfaced with modern developments in information theory (such as machine-learning algorithms), data mining, and high-performance computing.
