A Collaborative & Diverse Group


Principal Investigator

Amin holds an Assistant Professorship at the Niels Bohr International Academy. He also has a cross-appointment as a Specially Appointed Assistant Professor at the Department of Bioengineering in Osaka University, Japan.               
Before joining NBI, Amin held a Royal 1851 Research Fellowship at Oxford University's Rudolph Peierls Centre for Theoretical Physics.


Postdoctoral Research Assistant

Yavor joined the NBI after a brief postdoc with Julia Yeomans in the Oxford Physics Department. He also obtained his doctorate in Physical & Theoretical Chemistry at Oxford and prior to that did his Master’s and Bachelor’s degrees at the University of Sofia in Bulgaria. Yavor uses computational and analytical methods to study soft matter systems such as polymeric aggregates and thin liquid films.


Postdoctoral Research Assistant

Chandana obtained her Ph.D. degree from the university of Calcutta, 

India on Theoretical Soft Condensed Matter Physics. Prior to that she did  

B.Sc. and M.Sc in Physics from Visva-Bharati University. After finishing 

Ph.D. she joined the group of Prof. Itamar Procaccia at the Weizmann 

Institute of Science as a Postdoctoral Fellow. After working there for 

four years she moved to Denmark and joined NBI as a postdoc. Chandana

is interested in studying active soft matter systems using computational 

and analytical methods.


Postdoctoral Research Assistant

Natascha holds a PhD in Biophysics from the University of Copenhagen which she obtained after finishing her MSc in Physics from RWTH Aachen University in Germany.

After a postdoc in Alexander Dunn's group at the Department of Chemical Engineering at Stanford University, she returned to the Niels Bohr Institute for another postdoc.

Natascha is interested in studying cellular dynamics using a combination of single cell manipulation and advanced imaging techniques.


Master Student

Salik is a biophysics graduate student at the Niels Bohr Institute, where he also did his bachelor’s degree. He will be working on a project on active nematics, using computational and analytical means to investigate self-pumping fluids.
