Welcome to the Bio and Nano Physics Group, led by Prof. Dr. Thomas Franosch at the Theoretical Physics Department at the University of Innsbruck. The group addresses a broad range of fundamental questions in biological and nano physics using a combination of theoretical and computational tools. In nano physics, the group elaborates a quantitative understanding of strongly confined liquids. The group is also investigating driven lattice Lorenz gases. In the area of biological physics, the group is interested in the dynamics of self-propelled particles and thin needles.
