Naomi Oppenheimer joined the foundation in 2016 as a research fellow at the Center for Computational Biology in the biophysical modeling group. Her research interests are in fluid dynamics, elasticity and the interplay between them. Her work uses analytical and computational tools to solve biophysical problems related to membrane hydrodynamics, active particles, living cells and more. She did her Ph.D. at Tel-Aviv University under the supervision of Haim Diamant and went on to work as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Chicago with Thomas Witten and then at Princeton with Howard Stone.
