Dr Wuge Briscoe
Senior Lecturer in Physical Chemistry
Area of research
Interactions at bio- and nano-interfaces
- Wuge's research interests include direct measurement of surface forces mediated by surfactants, polymers and nanofluids, and fundamental aspects of biolubrication and nanotoxicity.
After his PhD at the IWRI, University of South Australia, Wuge spent several years in Oxford, first as a postdoctoral fellow, then as an EPSRC Postdoctoral Fellow at Life Science Interface and a (Guy Newton) junior research fellow at Wolfson College, before joining Bristol. He also maintained collaborations with the KTH, Stockholm during his EPSRC fellowship and spent an enjoyable period of time as a visiting scientist at Karlstad University, Sweden. (Group web page >>)
