Dr Ali Zarbakhsh


Senior Lecturer

Room Number: Room 1.13, Joseph Priestley Building

Undergraduate Teaching

  • Essential Skills for Chemists (Tutorials) (CHE100)
  • Practical Chemistry (CHE201)
  • Advanced Practical Chemistry 1 (CHE301)
  • Topics in Physical Chemistry (CHE304U)
  • Advanced Topics in Physical Chemistry (CHE404U)


Research Interests:

Structural studies of biological and polymeric systems at buried fluid-fluid interfaces. The current area of interest is a model for lipid emulsion drug delivery systems and interaction of a lipid monolayer with negatively charged polyelectrolytes such as DNA.

Techniques used are X-ray and neutron scattering, reflectivity, in-plane diffraction and small angle scattering in addition to vibrational sum frequency spectroscopy, ellipsometry and atomic force microscopy.
