Job Thijssen

Soft matter physicist

I am an experimental physicist by training, with research experience in soft matter and complex fluids. My research focuses on the physics and applications of soft materials, especially those in which interfaces are crucial and those that have potential for applications in coatings and energy materials. I am currently a Reader in the School of Physics & Astronomy at The University of Edinburgh, where I teach experimental physics and supervise undergraduate & PhD research projects. Finally, I am involved in collaborations on interfaces in energy materials (MISE), on complex-fluids knowledge exchange (ECFP) and on equality, diversity and inclusion in STEM (Evidence Base).
