In 2010, I moved to the Theory of Polymers and Soft Matter group at Eindhoven University of Technology (Dept. of Applied Physics), where I am now an independently operating postdoc funded by the Dutch Science Foundation (NWO) through a Veni grant.
I have been postponing a thorough update of my web site until I could host it in Eindhoven, which is unfortunately still not possible.
Soft matter physics is about understanding the properties of materials that are disordered, soft or in some other way between liquids and solids. Prime factors determining these properties are the basic interactions between the particles that make up the material, as well as its geometric properties.
I work on a variety of topics in soft condensed matter theory, from granular media and colloids to soft materials built from molecules such as polymers and lipids, using a combination of numerical tools such as molecular dynamics simulation and analytic approaches. For a more detailed view, please check out my list of publications.
