YARIV KAFRI

 
 

My group is focused on statistical mechanics and its applications.


Most recently I have been interested in biological and far from equilibrium systems. These often display unusual dynamical and collective behavior which can not be seen in equilibrium.  In particular I have performed theoretical work on non-equilibrium fluctuations, driven diffusive system, molecular motors, translocation of polymers, conformations of DNA molecules, chemotaxis of bacteria and target location by proteins.
