The aim of group is to link and control both structures and dynamics from microscopic to mesoscopic and macroscopic length scales in systems ranging from ʽsimpleʼ liquids to various soft materials such as polymers, emulsions, gels, foams, colloids, liquid crystals, and their biological counterparts. Our investigations employ a combination of theory, simulations and experimental techniques to model and build complex and structured materials with desired functionalities and microstructures.
Active areas of research are:
- Rheology and microrheology of complex fluids
- Engineering of micro/nano particles
- Anisotropic particles suspensions
- Active colloids
