Research

I am a member of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, Soft Matter group. I am interested in the structure and rheology of soft amorphous materials, like glasses, granular systems or dense suspensions. My main focus is the way these materials behave close to liquid-solid transitions.
