Research Statement

Research in the Van ’t Hoff Laboratory focusses on the interplay between colloidal synthesis and the physical description of soft matter. We prepare colloidal particles of different shapes, sizes, materials and interactions. Characterization by various experimental techniques and development of theoretical models helps us to understand their physical chemistry.
