Specialising in Soft Active Matter
We tackle academic and industry-related research within the broad scope of soft active matter. We are majority-funded by the 5-year Leverhulme Trust Research Leadership Award "Shape Transforming Active Matter", and also currently receive funding from Horizon 2020 Future Emerging Technologies Grant "H-Reality".
Our research covers the full pipeline from mathematical underpinning to experimental realisation. We are a highly collaborative group, working on projects with other scientists and industries in the US, Australia, and elsewhere in Europe. We also work with artists on projects that include exhibitions and film. See our research page for more information.
