Dr. Sofia Kantorovich

Associate Professor (Ural Federal University, Ekaterinburg, Russia)

ETN-COLLDENSE coordinator, http://www.colldense.eu

Her current research interests lie in the field of complex dipolar systems and can be divided into 3 main groups:

  • magnetic soft matter (magnetic fluids, magnetic gels, capped magnetic colloids, anisotropic magnetic particles, Janus particles),
  • charged soft matter (ionic liquids, polyelectrolytes) and
  • DNA duplexes self-­‐assembly.

She used different statistical physics methods and computer simulations and developed various new approaches to describe the aforementioned systems in detail and to assist experimentalists in constructing possible new smart materials.
