Soft Condensed Matter

We study the physics of soft materials, including metamaterials, topological materials, complex media, biological materials and colloidal assemblies. We aim to understand fundamental principles of self-assembly, rational design of smart materials, the role of geometry, and life itself, using a range of theoretical, experimental and numerical techniques.
