Physics colloquium
Our research is focused on topics in theoretical soft matter physics, such as colloids, active matter, 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).
