Studying Chromatin Dynamics by Advanced Live Cell Imaging Methods

The DNA in a human cell (which is ~3 meters long) is packed in a tiny nucleus of ~10 μm radius. Although it is dynamic, it is well organized. By using advanced microscopy methods for live cell imaging, we study the mechanisms that organizes the chromatin in the nucleus. We identified a dynamic structure that was not known before that we call the ‘DNA matrix’.

Accreting Neutron Stars and the Physics of Dense Matter

Neutron stars are composed of the densest observable matter in nature and occupy the intellectual frontier between astrophysics, nuclear physics, and, now, gravitational physics. Current and planned nuclear experiments on heavy nuclei and observations of neutron stars in both electromagnetic and gravitational waves will be exploring the nature of dense matter from complimentary approaches.

New Opportunities in Single-particle Cryo-EM: Mapping States in an Ensemble, Trapping Short-lived States
Single-particle cryo-EM provides experimental access to large ensembles of biological molecules, but current methods of analysis fall short of mining the rich information buried in the data sets.

Galilean Geometry in Condensed Matter Physics

In this talk, we discuss methods and applications of Newton-Cartan geometry in condensed matter systems. Newton-Cartan geometry provides an efficient means to impose Galilean spacetime symmetries within field theory, which has historically been much trickier than the relativistic case.
