I am a biophysicist interested in studying how forces generated at the level of single cytoskeletal filaments are translated in to seamless cell migration. I am presently working jointly in the labs of Jeff Gelles and Bruce Goode at Brandeis University in Waltham (USA), where I use a combination of biochemical as well as biophysical approaches to study actin-based cell motility. I use microfluidics-assisted single-filament TIRF imaging, single-molecule imaging as well as reconstituted systems.
