Prof. Thomas Franosch's Group


Welcome to the BioNano-Physics Group, led by Prof. Dr. Thomas Franosch at the Institute for Theoretical Physics of the Universität Innsbruck, Austria.

The group addresses a broad range of fundamental questions in biological and nano physics using a combination of theoretical and computational tools. Our research encompasses complex transport phenomena in crowded environments, the non-equilibrium physics of self-propelled particles, the glass transition of strongly confined liquids, thermophoresis of colloidal particles, and the elastic and dynamic properties of polymers.
