Research

  • We specialize in modelling physical properties of soft condensed matter, complex & macromolecular fluids and biological systems, in collaboration with several experimental teams worldwide. These systems include polymers, DNA, polyelectrolytes, gels, colloids, surfactants and micellar solutions, amphiphilic monolayers, bilayers and bio-membranes, ferrofluids, and ionic liquids and ionic solutions.

  • In particular, we explore the properties of self-assembling block co-polymers in relation with nano-lithography, and the ways to manipulate them at patterned surfaces, in thin film geometries and in presence of electric fields.

  • In another line of research, we investigate ionic and polyelectrolyte solutions, their interactions with charge interfaces and bio-membranes, and their response to external electric fields.
