Professor Julia Yeomans

My research

My research is in theoretical and computational soft condensed matter and statistical physics, using mathematics to understand physical systems. We are interested in liquid crystals, drops on microstructured surfaces, active systems that create their own energy and biological problems, swimming bacteria and mechanical forces in cell division.

My journey

I am privileged to be able to combine a large family and an exciting career. Lots of things have helped: a Fellowship when the children were small, the flexibility of academic work, and Peter and I being appointed  to permanent jobs at the same university.
