About Devesh Mistry
Physicist turned materials scientist/engineer specialising in Liquid Crystal Elastomers which in my opinion are the most exciting form of soft matter. I completed my PhD in the group of Professor Helen Gleeson at the University of Leeds. My research was supported by an Industrial Fellowship from the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851. Next I am moving to the University of Colorado, Denver to join the group of Dr. Chris Yakacki where my research with Liquid Crystal Elastomers will continue and my conversion to an engineer will be complete. Aside from liquid crystal elastomers, I'm interested in functional, biomimetic and self-assembling soft matter - so the usual!
