Research Interests

My Research is focused on the behaviour of soft materials at the nanoscale. This includes self assembly of polymers, dynamics in thin films and near surface and interfaces. I have a long standing interest on the dynamics of glassy materials.

  • What have we learned after 20 years of measuring glass transitions in thin polymer films? J Forrest. Invited talk, American Physical Society.
