I study physics since I want to understand the basic principles which are at work in daily human life. Though the study of string theory, and quarks is fascinating to me, I am personally far more fascinated by the intricate patterns which form just while cooking food, and in systems of living beings. Broadly speaking these two phenomena are entirely described by the fast growing field of physics known as soft and active matter.
In looking into this type of phenomena I've been led astray into experimentally studying complex non-linear networks (reaction diffusion networks), modeling wetting dynamics of soft solids, and modeling topologically constrained flocks.
