Congratulations to Richard on his election to Fellowship of the Royal Society (18th May 2006). Richard’s research background is in the physics of soft matter – particularly the theory and properties of polymer interfaces, and evaluating how properties of polymers change at their surfaces. Current research includes fundamental studies of adhesion, phase behaviour, crystallinity and an interest in polymer nano-machines.

Richard has written a number of books, including Soft Machines: nanotechnology and life (2004, Oxford University Press) and Soft Condensed Matter (2002, Oxford University Press). Find out more about Richard’s research interests on his website:
