Slide 1 jFlow Plus

Self-assembly of colloidal chains

Bulk self-assembly of colloidal chains from bowl-shaped particles.

Ongoing work with Tess Jacobson, Stefano Sacanna, Andrew H. Hollingsworth, and David J. Pine.

Slide 2 jFlow Plus

Rotational diffusion

First direct observation of decoupling between rotational and translational diffusion in a supercooled fluid.

Research collaboration with Mark T. Elsesser, Gary L. Hunter, David J. Pine, and Eric R. Weeks.

Slide 3 jFlow Plus

Confinement effect

Confinement induces a colloidal glass transition, finding the longest colloidal lengthscale.

Research with Gary L. Hunter and Eric R. Weeks.

Slide 4 jFlow Plus


Stable viscoelastic jets as a template for the colloidal self-assembly of cylindrical capsules.

Research collaboration with Anthony D. Dinsmore and Jonathan P. Rothstein.

Slide 5 jFlow Plus


Highly fluorescent oil-in-water micro-emulsions.

Research with Christopher R. Knutson and Jing Zhou.

I am an experimental research scientist working on soft materials in the New York City area.
