Research Description: 

Sho is interested in the statistical mechanics and fluid dynamics of biological soft matter systems. He combines techniques of computational and experimental soft matter to study how emergent biological properties emerge from collective activity of microbial and cellular communities. These insights will advance fundamental understanding of the properties of bacterial biofilms and biological tissues, and could also lead to the design of bio-inspired, adaptive complex fluids for applications in medicine, manufacturing, and biomaterials.
