Long-range interactions, wobbles, and phase defects in chains of model cilia
(American Physical SoceityPhysical Review Fluids, 2016-12-13)
Eukaryotic cilia and flagella are chemo-mechanical oscillators capable of generating long-range coordinated motions known as metachronal waves. Pair synchronization is a fundamental requirement for these collective dynamics, ...
Squirmers with swirl - a model for Volvox swimming
(Cambridge University PressJournal of Fluid Mechanics, 2016)
Colonies of the green alga Volvox are spheres that swim through the beating of pairs of flagella on their surface somatic cells. The somatic cells themselves are mounted rigidly in a polymeric extracellular matrix, fixing ...
