Me and my collaborators

I’m part of this big IBI-4 group at FZ Jülich and the Soft matter and biophysics group (but we didn’t make a recent photo)

Dr. Pavlik Lettinga

I obtained my PhD in the Department of Molecular Biophysics and the Van `t Hoff Laboratory for Physical and Colloidal Chemistry, Debye-Instituut, University Utrecht, the Netherlands, in 1999. My work included photo-physical characterization of fluorophores and their application in the study of the rotational dynamics of concentrated colloids. I joined in 2000 the Soft Condensed Matter group of Jan Dhont at the FZ Jülich, initially as post doc and since 2001 as staff member. In 2011 I habilitated in Physics at the Heinrich-Heine Universität, Düsseldorf, on the theme Dynamics and Flow Behaviour of Colloidal Rod-like particles. Since 2012 I am part-time professor at the KU Leuven. My main interest is to gain a microscopic understanding of the interplay between structure and flow. To this end, I have developed experimental techniques to study structure under flow, using neutron and X-ray scattering and light microscopy, for a broad range of systems.
