STAMLab Multidisciplinary Research Group

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".

Maths

Analytical techniques including mathematical modelling, continuum methods, and asymptotics

Numerics

Bespoke multiphysics simulation, boundary and finite elements, discrete particle methods, image and data analysis.

Experiment

3D printing, microfluidics, material characterisation, and imaging

Collaboration

Enthusiastic group of scientists always looking to collaborate on interesting problems

Our Research

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.
