I am a cell biologist currently working in Paris, France. I am interested in understanding how the mechanical properties of cells and tissues influence biological processes. I split my time between experimental biology and developing software for image/data analysis.

New and notable

In this new paper, we use a combination of experiments and theory to show that viscoelastic relaxation in collagen networks can provide a self-generated directional cue during collective migration.

In this paper from Staneva et al, we analyze collective migration patterns of cancer cells in the core of intestinal tumors, using live-imaging of tumor explants combined with quantitative image analysis.

In this paper from Attieh et al, we investigate how cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs) promote invasive migration away from cancer cell aggregates by depositing fibronectin in a contractility-dependent manner.
