Research Fields

We study fundamentals and applications in the fields of soft matter, colloids and surface/molecular forces, and transport phenomena near surfaces and interfaces.

Students and postdoctoral fellows who are interested in experimental or theoretical work are welcomed to contact us.

Research Topics

In our current projects we look at the wetting and coating of solid surfaces, the pattern deposition of nano-particles and polymers from volatile carrier liquids, the convection of ions in electrochemical cells, the colloidal stability of suspensions/emulsions, and the representation of soft matter systems using methods of near-equilibrium thermodynamics.
