Lecturer, School of Physics
We study the structure and flow of amorphous Soft Matter systems, such as foams, emulsion and granular media through experiments and simulations. These materials produce rich and often unexpected phenomena. These systems can behave solid-like, such as sand on the beach, but may also flow, albeit quite differently than ordinary fluids. Our current research effort is focused on the interplay between the microscopic dynamics and non-linear macroscopic flow of foams and emulsions. We are part of The Foams & Complex Systems Research Group.
