Gareth Alexander

I am an Associate Professor in Physics and Complexity Science working in theoretical soft matter physics. My main interests at present are in applications of geometry and topology to the understanding of soft materials, where I have worked primarily on defects in liquid crystals, and self-propulsion in low Reynolds number hydrodynamics and active matter.

Before moving to Warwick I was a post-doc at UPenn working with Randy Kamien. And before that I was a DPhil student in Oxford with Julia Yeomans.


In 2019/2020 I will lecture the following courses:
