Personal profile

Research interests

I run a theoretical physics research lab at the University of Bath. In general, we are interested in modelling the mechanics of soft materials and designing new states of matter. More specifically, our interests include flow and patterns in active materials, topological states of soft matter, and polymer physics in the context of biological materials. In addition to modelling naturally occurring soft matter, we also design new structures called mechanical metamaterials using patterns on scales from nanometers to the macroscopic.
