Soft Condensed Matter and Biophysics

Gareth Alexander, Rudolf Römer, Matthew Turner

Physics can provide a framework on which to build a profound understanding of complex biological and chemical systems. Our goal is to understand universal behaviour shared by all similar systems. Techniques drawn from statistical and continuum mechanics are being employed to tackle problems involving both tethered and stacked fluid membranes as well as surface and interfacial phenomena in polymer systems.
