Dr Tiffany A Wood

Dr Tiffany Wood is Director of the Edinburgh Complex Fluids Partnership and a Royal Society Industry Fellow.    Tiffany has a PhD in Physics from the University of Manchester and carried out postdoctoral research on colloidal glasses at the University of Bristol before joining Edinburgh's Soft Matter and Biological Physics research group in 2007.

Together with Professor Wilson Poon, Tiffany set up ECFP in 2011 employing a team of core-staff to work on industrially-related research in the laboratory.  Core-staff also spend some of their time developing new collaborative projects through networking with industry.  

Tiffany's research interests are in the behaviour of colloids in liquid crystalline media.  She is interested in how these structured fluids determine the assembly of colloids and how defects determine bulk behaviour.
