Ana-Sunčana Smith is a theoretical physicist at the Friedrich Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany, where she established a group on the Physics Underlying Life Sciences in 2009. She is also a senior researcher at the Ruđer Bošković Institute in Croatia. She develops statistical physics concepts and tools to study interfacial systems in biology (membranes and epithelial tissues) and in functional materials, focusing on the role of fluctuations, growth, patterning, and transport in nonequilibrium settings.


Measuring Entropy Production at the Mesoscale

Theorists place bounds on the energy consumption of a mesoscopic nonequilibrium system using parameters that are experimentally accessible. Read More »
