Tyler Shendruk is a theoretical physicist who studies soft, flowing materials and has a passion for biology as viewed by soft condensed matter physics. Soft matter includes all those messy, squishy complex materials of life, such as gels, foams, mucus or liquid crystals, that simultaneously have both fluid- and elastic-like properties. He uses and develops coarse-grained numerical algorithms to simulate such biomaterials and biophysical flowsalways on the lookout for new algorithms and exciting biological systems.
