Welcome to my website. I am Feng, an independent project leader in the department of Physics of Cells and Cancer at Institut Curie in Paris.
Our research focus - self-assembly of active protein complexes on membranes
Over the last 5 years, we have focused on understanding how the assembly of the actin cytoskeleton and membrane curvature-senesing proteins drive membrane remodeling processes such as filopodia formation, endocytosis and macropinocytosis in cells.
Our research tools
We have developed a multidisciplinary approach combining synthetic systems and quantitative physical measurements, including the use of optical tweezers.
Our research team
Since 2019, the members of my team are Cecile Maguin (Master student, background in physics, 2020), Gwendal Guerin (PhD student, background in biochemistry, November 2021-present) and Simli Dey (postdoc with expertise in optics and biophysics, September 2021-present).
If you are interested in joining my research team as a postdoc, undergraduate or graduate student, please feel free to contact me!
