Dwaipayan Chakrabarti holds the position of Associate Professor in Soft Matter in the School of Chemistry and actively takes part in the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Topological Design.
The Chakrabarti group’s research is currently focused on optimally designing soft advanced materials for addressing sustainability issues and devising strategies for their scalable fabrication that exploits self-assembly routes for a range of building blocks, from molecular to microscale, with their expertise in computation and theory. The group is particularly interested in designing novel photonic, phononic, mechanical and opto-electronic materials, as well as developing fundamental understanding of experimentally observed phenomena in soft materials. In the pursuit of developing soft advanced materials by design, the Chakrabarti group develops, adapts and applies a variety of computational methods to investigate the structures, phase behaviour and properties of soft matter, especially colloids and liquid crystals.
