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).
Complex field-stabilised nematic defect structures in Laguerre-Gaussian optical tweezers.
We developed an easy-to-use open-source software for polarised optical microscopy going beyond the Jones method. For more details, see Open-source software
