We are interested in understanding and controlling the principles and parameters that drive the self-assembly of polymers and colloids, quantifying the properties that emerge as a result of self-assembly, and ultimately using our knowledge to design improved properties of interest and to gain an understanding of complex biological materials. Example systems we are currently exploring are polymer networks with dual bonds, the liquid-liquid phase separation of intrinsically-disordered proteins and peptides, and the self-assembly of natural marine adhesives.
We are putting together this group in the summer of 2020. Interested in working as an undergraduate or graduate student from September 2020 onwards? Do not hesitate to contact us and we can arrange a meeting!Undergraduate Students: Contact Emmanouela via e-mail with your CV, grades, and a brief statement of your interests and goals.
