Research

  • Slow dynamics and routes to structural arrest (glass transition, gelation, jamming etc.) in supercooled liquids and other soft matter systems.
  • Mechanical properties of glasses and other amorphous solids their yielding behaviour and memory effects.
  • Routes to jamming in sphere packings and geometrical aspects of jammed packings.
  • Self-assembly in soft matter.
  • Anomalous properties: liquid-liquid phase transition in networking forming liquids.
  • Statistical mechanical models of biological behaviour.
