The term soft condensed matter refers to a range of systems that fall between simple liquids and solids, for instance colloidal suspensions, emulsions, liquid crystals, and polymers. This includes many systems of practical or biological importance, such as inks, paints, shampoos, foodstuffs, milk and blood. Real systems tend to be complex, consisting of many components that are often difficult to characterise in detail. Well-defined model systems are therefore studied instead. A central theme is the use of polymers to control particle interactions, structure and phase behaviour in colloidal suspensions.
Jeroen van Duijneveldt was appointed to a lectureship at the University of Bristol in 1997 and currently is reader in physical chemistry. He obtained his Ph.D. in 1994 at the Van 't Hoff Laboratory in Utrecht under supervision of Professor Henk Lekkerkerker and Dr. Jan Dhont. Subsequently, he joined the group of Professor Mike Allen at the Physics Department at the University of Bristol. He is a member of the Royal Dutch Chemical Society, the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC; CChem MRSC), the Society of Chemical Industry and the Institute of Physics (CPhys MInstP). He is treasurer of the ...
