Research summary

Paddy Royall is interested in tackling key unsolved problems in everyday materials. He combines computer simulations and novel experiments where suspensions of micron-sized colloidal particles, whose Brownian motion leads them to obey statistical mechanics in the same way as atoms and molecules, are imaged in 3D at the single-particle level. This two-pronged approach is uniquely powerful for tackling a wide range of problems in condensed matter. Key areas of interest include the nature of glass, the role of amorphous structures in understanding self-assembly, and the influence of networks in materials, such as gels and mobility graphs in dynamical arrest.
