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.
