The research in our group is currently focused on the understanding of the physical properties of amorphous systems such as glasses, colloidal suspensions, and granular materials. Due to the disorder of their structures, these amorphous systems exhibit complicated behaviors that cannot be successfully explained by existing theories.

The present research topics include the glass transition, jamming transition, and their connections, properties of glasses and other jammed solids, dynamics of supercooled liquids approaching the glass transition, rheology of amorphous systems under shear, self assembly of colloidal suspensions, disorder effects on structural and vibrational properties of colloids, and jamming and glass transition of polymers. More topics concerning soft matter in biological physics and material sciences would be studied in the future.
