Professor of Physical chemistry and soft matter

Within ARC CBBC, I wish to accomplish…

I see this as a great opportunity to start new collaborations with excellent scientists and to work on problems that are both scientifically challenging and relevant for society and industry.

In my scientific career, I am most proud of…

Our work on polyelectrolyte complexation: by combining synthetic chemistry, a large range of experimental techniques, and theoretical modelling, we have made very significant contributions to understanding the self-assembly of oppositely charged polyelectrolytes and the properties of the structures that they form. I am also very proud of the talented PhD students that I supervised: four of them won prestigious awards for their thesis, and all have successful careers in academia or industry.
