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).
