Physics colloquium
Our research is focused on topics in theoretical soft matter physics, such as colloids, liquid crystals, granular matter, and liquid crystal elastomers. The approaches include macroscopic phenomenology (Landau-de Gennes, Leslie-Ericksen, and similar), topology, and microscopic molecular modeling (lattice and off-lattice Monte Carlo).

Topological defect cores in thin nematic shells surrounding colloidal particles.

     Sensing surface morphology of biofibers by decorating spider silk and cellulosic filaments with nematic microdroplets in PNAS.
     Knot theory realizations in nematic colloids in PNAS.
     Light-controlled topological charge in Nature Physics.
