I'm a phycisist studying problem either of biological interest or inspired by biology such as fundamental theories of collective motion (active matter), collective motion in fish, jamming in active matter, and power delivery in neurons. Before that I worked on vortex lattices in superconductors.

My work combines theoretical and computational approaches from soft matter physics such as Brownian dynamics, nonequilibrium statistical mechanics, and differential geometry.

Open Position

I'm looking for a postdoc to work on power delivery in neurons with Greg Macleod. Experience with diffusion problems and/or the Python programming language is a plus. To apply, send me a CV at yfily@fau.edu. Informal inquiries welcome.
