Research Interests

Theoretical soft-condensed matter physics. The  relation  between structure, dynamics, and driving mechanisms in ordered and disordered particulate media. Computer modelling of super-cooled liquids and glasses, colloidal suspensions, foams, and granular matter.

Open House

Several times a year SIU puts on an Open House event, where prospective 
students come and talk with departmental representatives. Here is the 
Department of Physics Open House presentation. It gives an overview of what 
physics is about, applications of physics, and potential employment with a physics 
degree. There is also a section summarizing the faculty in the department. Some
simulation movies too, if you can view them.

If you have any questions about enrolling in the Department of Physics please contact myself, the Chair
or the administrative staff here in Physics.
