About Dr Dreiss
Cécile Dreiss is a Reader in Soft Matter. Her research focuses on understanding and exploiting self-assembly in soft matter, spanning colloidal, polymeric and biological systems, by establishing relationships between properties on the macro-scale (bulk behaviour or functionality) and the organization on the nanoscale. She uses neutron and X-ray scattering techniques extensively as well as rheology.
Cécile graduated in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering (ENSIC, Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Industries Chimiques, France). She did her PhD at Imperial College (Chemical Engineering) under the supervision of Prof Dame Julia Higgins and Prof Paul Luckham (2003), after which she took up a 2-year postdoc position at the University of Bristol with Prof. Terence Cosgrove. She then moved back to London and was appointed as a lecturer at King's College London in September 2005.
Cécile sits on the RSC/SCI Joint Colloids Group (Chair) and the MLZ Review Panel for Soft Matter.
