Biography

Research Interests

Our research group interests concern the general areas of crystallization, colloids and semi-crystalline polymers. A broad range of subjects are available that utilize both experimental (typically X-ray diffraction, FTIR, ESEM, TEM and optical microscopy) and computational modelling techniques. Studies span from fundamental blue skies research, through to industrially-sponsored projects.

Research interests

  • Structured Ternary Fluids
  • Crystallisation in Nanoconfinement
  • Colloids
  • Semi-crystalline Polymers

Research groups
