Summary

 

Overview

Research Interests

 - Phase behaviour of lyotropic liquid-crystalline systems (phospholipids, glycolipids, carbohydrate surfactants, and structure of cubic phases

 - Metallosurfactants as templates for the synthesis of novel mesoporous catalysts

 - Effects of hydrostatic pressure on the structure and stability of lyotropic crystalline phases

 - Kinetics of lyotropic phase transformations, using pressure-jump synchrotron X-ray diffraction

 - Effects of shear on lyotropic phases

 - Phase behaviour and structure of diblock copolymer/homopolymer blends

 - Synchrotron diffraction studies of magnetic field-induced realignment of smectic A phases

 - Phase behaviour of redox-active metallosurfactants

 - Aggregation and structure of DNA solutions
