We study the physics of soft matter using a discovery-driven approach.

Our goals as experimental physicists are 
1) build experimental tools in order to investigate the structure and dynamics of soft matter systems,
2) make quantitative models to capture the underlying physics of the observed phenomena,
3) utilize this understanding to create novel materials with designed properties and functionality.
