Julia Yeomans

Professor of Physics

Research in our group addresses a variety of problems in soft matter and biological physics using theoretical and computational tools from statistical mechanics and hydrodynamics. We are particularly interested in the dynamics of soft-matter, active systems, motility at low Reynolds number, and the interactions of fluids with structured surfaces. We collaborate closely with other members of the Oxford Centre for Soft and Biological Matter and are embedded in the Condensed Matter Theory group of the Rudolf Peierls Centre for Theoretical Physics, part of the Department of Physics at the University of Oxford.
