I am an Assistant Professor in Physics and Complexity Science working in theoretical soft matter physics. My main interests at present are in applications of geometry and topology to the understanding of soft materials, where I have worked primarily on defects in liquid crystals, and self-propulsion in low Reynolds number hydrodynamics and active matter.
In 2012/2013 I will lecture the following courses:
- "Conformal smectics and their many metrics", Phys. Rev. E 85, 070501(R) (2012).
with Randall D. Kamien and Ricardo A. Mosna
- "Disclination loops, point defects, and all that in nematic liquid crystals", Rev. Mod. Phys. 84, 497-514 (2012).
with Bryan Gin-ge Chen, Elisabetta A. Matsumoto, and Randall D. Kamien
