I'm an assistant professor of experimental condensed matter physics, research group leader (Active Matter) and Academy Research Fellow 2018-2023. I'm broadly interested in physics of soft and biological materials. Some examples include pattern formation in ferrofluids, lotus-mimicking superhydrophobic surfaces, magnetic tweezing of 'non-magnetic' matter, coloration of a certain spider from Madagascar and fundamentals of slippery lubricated surfaces. Currently, my Academy Research Fellowship and ERC Starting Grant focus on microscopic active matter systems.
