Research Interests:

Theoretical and computational condensed matter physics

I am particularly interested in

- physics of liquids and supercritical fluids
- field-theoretical description of liquids and dissipation
- amorphous solids, disordered magnetic systems, liquid-glass transition
- radiation damage in materials and its effect on materials use in nuclear and fusion applications.

This is discussed on my personal website in more detail.



EPSRC, NERC, Royal Society


This is not an exhaustive list and I would be happy to discuss other project possibilities.
