We always welcome applications from enthusiastic researchers of all levels (from students to post-docs). Contact prof. Jaakko Timonen for details.
- Active matter: We investigate behavior of biological micro/milliswimmers in complex environments and interfaces. We also develop, engineer and synthesize artificial systems that mimic naturally occuring active materials.
- Non-equilibrium systems: Active matter is just one example of non-equilibrium systems. We are interested in the transition between equilibrium and non-equilibrium self-assembly.
- Fluids and colloids in EM fields: We are interested in the ways that fluids and colloidal matter interact with electric and magnetic fields. We also develop new electromagnetic microtweezing tools for soft matter research.
