Stefan Klumpp is professor for theoretical biophysics at the University of Göttingen, Germany, and a fellow of the Max Planck School Matter to Life. His research revolves around the question of how physical constraints shape the function of living systems, both as active soft matter and as information-processing systems. His specific research interests include the stochastic dynamics of molecular machines, the interplay of genetic circuits and cell growth, and the motility and navigation of cells.
