Welcome to Thomas Gibaud Web page.
I do soft matter physicis. I use, purify or engineer organic and living matter to design smart colloids which serve as building blocks to create soft materials with fine tuned dynamics and structures.
Those materials are not only a venue to study self-assembly, gels and active matter but they also mimics many phenomena observed in biology or hard condensed matter.
Materials properties are investigated using techniques as varied as scattering, rheology or microscopy.
