Prof. Matthias Möbius received his PhD degree in experimental soft condensed matter physics from the University of Chicago, USA in 2006. His PhD was on granular size separation and granular jet instabilities. From 2006 and 2009 he was a postdoctoral researcher at Leiden University where he worked on foam rheology and molecular glasses. In 2009 he joined the school of physics in Trinity College.
Prof. Möbius’s research interest is the structure and flow of amorphous soft matter systems, in particular the interplay between the microscopic dynamics and the macroscopic, non-linear flow properties of complex fluids. His research currently focuses on understanding the flow properties of 2D nanoparticle suspensions which is important for applications such as printed electronics. Moreover, he investigates the electrical properties of disordered, high aspect ratio platelet system in order to gain a better understanding of the electrical transport of 2D nanoparticle films.
AMBER has a strong emphasis on collaboration. Central to AMBER’s research remit are collaborative projects performed with industry partners, and working with academic, industry and wider stakeholder on international and national research programmes.Get in touch
