From molecules to moduli : data driven approaches to understanding active materials

Aparna Baskaran

Brandeis University

Active matter is a term that has come to describe diverse systems from flocking animals to the cytoskeleton of a cell.
In this talk I will give an overview of the theoretical paradigm that unifies these diverse systems and discuss some results from
minimal models for self-propelled particles and suspension of cytoskeletal filaments. Then, I will present recent theoretical
progress in using data driven techniques to bridge experiment and theory in active suspensions.
