Research interests

My research interest covers topics at the interdisciplinary edge of soft matter physics, such as complex fluids, active matter, colloids, liquid crystals, bio-sensors, optics and photonics of anisotropic media, topological materials, and protein biophysics. With my group I work along four main research directions: (i) structures in active and passive complex fluids, (ii) complex optics and photonics in anisotropic materials, (iii) active and passive microfluidics of complex fluids, and (iv) protein biophysics in biopharmaceutics. My work in soft matter materials is typically strongly linked with experiments and typically relies on combination of computer modelling, analytical and topological approaches, and data science approaches such as neural networks.
