About Aphy

We are a multidisciplinary group of enthusiastic researchers from the Departments of Physics and of Applied Physics & Photonics. We use experimental and theoretical methods to address fundamental challenges in biological physics, condensed matter physics, electromagnetism, laser physics and photonics. This combination allows an imaginative, cross-disciplinary and insightful approach to such problems. For example, we focus on the study of metamaterials and nanophotonics, on bio-inspired approaches to machine learning (reservoir computing), on the dynamics of semiconductor lasers, nonequilibrium pattern formation and soliton dynamics, as well as on genetic transcription, cell division & microbial interactions in biological systems.
