Martin Buzza graduated in Physics and Theoretical Physics from the University of Cambridge and obtained his PhD in the Theory of Condensed Matter from the University of Cambridge in 1995, working with Prof. Mike Cates. In 1995, he joined the group of Prof. Tom McLeish at the IRC in Polymer Science & Technology at the University of Leeds and was awarded an EPSRC Advanced Research Fellowship in 1999. He moved to the Department of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Hull in 2005 where is currently Reader in Condensed Matter Physics.
His research interests are in colloid and interface science and soft condensed matter physics, focusing on modelling the self-assembly of colloids and polymers at fluid interfaces and in the bulk.
