Mr Alex De Bruin


Alex did his undergraduate Masters degree in Chemical Physics at Bristol, and decided to continue his studies. He started a PhD in the Bristol Centre for Functional Nanomaterials (BCFN), an EPSRC funded centre for doctoral training. After shorter projects in Physics and Engineering, he came back to the Soft Matter at Interfaces group for his PhD project, where he is trying to measure the interactions between chiral polymer brushes. He spends some of his time working down in the Bristol Dental Hospital, working on potential biomedical applications of his chiral polymers. Alex has now finished his PhD and has headed off to a job at Johnson Matthey's Sonning Common (Reading) site, controlling colloidal interactions in catalytic coatings, but does pop in from time to time.
