Sicard François

Research Associate (UCL)

Research Interests :

My main research interests focus on statistical physics and out-of-equilibrium dynamics of complex systems. Since April 2015, I am a Research Associate in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University College London (London, UK). I also work in collaboration with the PhyStat group at the Laboratory of Theoretical Physics (LPT, UMR 5152 - University Toulouse III) and the Laboratoty of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics (LMGM, UMR 5100 - University Toulouse III) on the dynamics of DNA/Protein conformational changes.
