I simulated the behaviour of cell membranes for a research collaboration with my wife, Catalina Spatarelu, and her colleague Dung Nguyen. It’s written in Observable using a literate programming style; that is prose, code and visualisation intermixed. Visualisations are all done using d3 and the physics interactions are optimised using a quadtree. The goal of the project is to analyse the jamming/unjamming transition and a poster has been accepted for presentation at CMBE 2019.

Check out the live simulation and play with the controls!
