Interdisciplinary lecturer in Chemistry and Applied Mathematics


Research Interests

Themes from physics, chemistry and mathematics, using the theory of statistical mechanics to understand the behaviour of complex systems including biomolecules, glassy liquids, and soft matter.  Particularly co-operative dynamics: for example, how do molecules move in crowded environments?  What are the co-operative mechanisms for colloidal self-assembly, and the folding of biomolecules?

Edwards members discover unexpected stability of 'Raspberry' Colloids

Oct 02, 2018

Research Groups in the Physics, Chemistry & Melville laboratories have discovered a new synthesis route to make uniform 'raspberry'-like colloids in a single step reaction. They show that aqueous suspensions of these nano-particles remain stable over a large range of ionic strengths, defying DLVO theory.
