Inspired soft matter through experimental geometry
Experimental geometry is an exploration of geometric form aimed at generating understanding and insight. This talk gives an overview of some of my projects that unite under the idea of experimental geometry as a route to exploring soft matter physics. I will explore the link between two-dimensional hyperbolic tilings and self assembled miktoarm star copolymers, periodic filament entanglements and skin swelling, as well as geometric insight into foam rheology.
