Dr Martin Buzza

Biography Admissions Tutor for Physics/ Programme Director for Theoretical Physics

Martin gained both his BA in Physics and Theoretical Physics and his PhD from Cambridge University. For his PhD he worked with Prof Mike Cates studying theoretical models for foam and emulsion rheology.

He moved to Leeds in 1994, where he first worked as a postdoc with Prof Tom McLeish, then as an EPSRC advanced research fellow, before moving to the University of Hull in 2005 where he is currently Reader in Condensed Matter Physics.

Martin's research area is in the theory of soft matter, with a current focus on the self assembly of colloids and polymers at liquid interfaces.
Research Interests Self-assembly and rheology of of colloids and polymers.
