About Us

Soft matter unites a broad class of physical states, ranging from colloids and micelles to biological and granular matter, that are easily deformed by external stresses. Self-assembly, non-equilibrium, driven/active matter, frustration, topology and folding are just a few of the many diverse topics. The investigators participating in the University of Puerto Rico - Mayagüez (UPRM) Soft Matter Collective provide a broad experience of the soft matter field and help identify the interconnected properties and features that make these materials relevant for emerging needs and applications in nanotechnology, bioengineering, and the industry.
