Hydrodynamic dispersion of micro-swimmers in suspension


We study the dynamics of dispersion of a suspension of micro-algae Chlamydomonas Reinhardtii. We investigate in particular the role of hydrodynamic interactions between swimmers in this dynamics : how it affect the swimming dynamics at a microscipic scale and the collective dynamics at a macroscopic scale.
