About

Biography:

Stoyan Smoukov is Senior Lecturer at Queen Mary University of London and led the Active & Intelligent Materials lab since 2012 at the University of Cambridge. He has published more than 70 journal papers, cited over 2000 times, with H-index of 21, co-founded a startup company for producing nanofibers, and is leading the work on a number of European projects and industrial collaborations.

Interests:

Current research interests are focused on the fundamentals of confinement, multi-responsive materials, materials for energy storage, as well as geometry and processing technologies for achieving responsiveness. We have demonstrated self-sensing materials and bottom-up fabrication of a number of complex shapes. We want to investigate on-demand responses between materials and living cells. The longer term goal is to create autonomous material robotics, where the materials themselves are the robots.

Expertise:

Artificial morphogenesis in oil droplets, multifunctional materials with multiple responses, nanoscience, nanoparticle synthesis, particle stabilization of emulsions and foams, hybrid interfaces, organic-inorganic materials, shear-spinning, scalable nanofibre fabrication, bottom-up manufacturing methods, reaction-diffusion systems, programmable assembly, autonomous material robotics.

Available equipment and techniques:

Membrane emulsification, Optical microscopy with polarization and (optional) fluorescence, rheology, magneto- rheological fluids, differential scanning calorimetry, Mechanical testing, glass pullers for making fine glass micropipettes for cell manipulation and clamping. Polymer synthesis, sol-gel reactions. 3D cell scaffold manufacturing. 3D Micromanipulators for cells. 3D printing.
