Research interests

My research revolves around Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) and its application in the field of soft matter and porous media. For soft matter it explores the behavior of complex non-Newtonian fluids such as polymer solutions or surfactant systems under mechanical shear. Current research includes spatio-temporal fluctuations due to flow instabilities or shear induced structural transformations. For transport processes in porous media, advanced NMR methods may contribute to the understanding of molecular exchange processes as seen in microporous materials such as zeolites. It may also improve our understanding of transport and diffusion in natural porous media such as soil, rocks or aquifers. Ultimately, current research is continuously pushing the boundaries and versatility of the NMR-toolbox.
