Bio: 

Prof Abbott's research revolves around investigations of interfacial phenomena and complex fluids. A particular focus is directed to dynamic phenomena at functional organic interfaces, including the development of principles for spatial and temporal control of soft materials. One research thrust is advancing the design of interfaces of liquid crystalline materials. A second theme of research revolves around the design of light-sensitive and redox-active amphiphiles and development of principles for spatial and temporal control of surfactant-based interfacial and bulk solution properties.
