Profiles in "Soft Matter Physics" Expertise Area

  • Lindsay is director of the Center for Single Molecule Biophysics in the Biodesign Institute at ASU, a Regents and University Professor and Nadine and Edward Carson Professor of Physics and Chemistry.
  • Jeff Yarger primary research interests are in biophysical chemistry, nano-materials and the general field of disordered or amorphous materials.
  • Matyushov's research interests are in theoretical and computational condensed matter physics, physical chemistry, and biophysics.
  • The aim of all of Thorpe's research is to find underlying topological and structural principles and unifying concepts. He is currently visiting Professor of Physics at Oxford University part of the year ( through 2018).
  • Vaiana has a research background in soft condensed matter physics applied to biological systems. Her research is driven by an interest in fundamental theoretical aspects of proteins as biological systems.
  • Beckstein's research group studies the molecular mechanisms of biological processes with advanced computer simulations. His group also develops new computational tools and algorithms.
  • Jiao has developed analytical and computational models for complex materials which can deepen fundamental understanding of the nature of such materials.
  • Sean Seyler is a Postdoctoral Research Scholar in the Department of Physics and Center for Biological Physics at ASU. He joined Steve Pressé's lab in 2018 after receiving his PhD in Physics at ASU under Oliver Beckstein.
  • Qing is a joint assistant professor of the Department of Physics, and the Center of Bioelectronics and Biosensors in the Biodesign Institute. He is also a member of the Center of Biological Physics at ASU.
  • Professor Tsen's research group focuses on the interaction of light with solid state and biological systems, in particular on the use of ultrafast laser sources to elucidate novel electron transport phenomena.
