Our research interests spans a wide variety of topics in self-assembly, soft matter, biophysics and nano-materials.

The group primarily focuses on biomaterials and biomolecular assemblies, including lamellar and non-lamellar lipid bilayer structures, amyloid protein and peptide fibrils, and elastic protein networks.

We are interested in developing new methods to control, align and investigate these systems, and in using them to produce new materials such as high surface area nanostructured metals.
