Welcome to the Waterloo Polymer Physics/Soft Matter Group website

In our group, we are interested in the properties of soft materials (like polymers, proteins, gels, etc..) in highly confined geometries. This may be in the form of a thin film, or it may be a region near a surface or interface. The study of soft materials in such geometries provides a challenge to our understanding of material properties and continues to supply us with a wide range of interesting problems to study. 

In our group we employ a wide range of state-of-the-art characterisation techniques to try and develop a detailed understand of confined soft materials.
