| We investigated some aspects of transport phenomena of two
representative complex systems: granular materials and biological cells.
In particular, we quantified the stability of the equilibrium states
of granular materials by looking at the static bulk properties and
transient local surface properties. We also explored the effects of
geometrical modifications to the efficiency of transport of intra-cellular cargos
in biological cells.
We utilized scaled table-top experimentation and computational
algorithms in the study of granular piles. On the other hand, we employed numerical
modeling for the biological cell system research.
