Research interests

Dr. Thijssen is a postdoctoral research fellow developing soft materials, e.g. pastes and gels, for energy applications. He is an experimental physicist and materials scientist with a background in photonic colloidal crystals, colloids in external fields and (nano)particle-stabilized liquid-liquid composites (e.g. emulsions and bijels). He also has extensive expertise of various characterization techniques including confocal microscopy, light/X-ray scattering, electron microscopy and (interfacial) rheology.

Guest lectures on soft materials and/or energy.

  • Solar Power: SUPA post-grad course.
  • Probes of Soft Matter: SUPA post-grad course.
  • Macromolecular Physics.

Job currently offers the following PhD project opportunities:
