Marcel Rey started his post-doc at the Physics Department of the University of Gothenburg on 1st August 2022. His research is funded by a Marie-Curie Individual Fellowship with Grant No. 101064381.

Marcel received a PhD degree in Chemical-Engineering from the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany. In his thesis, he focused on the self-assembly behavior of soft colloidal particles confined at liquid interfaces.

In the Soft Matter Lab, Marcel will investigate the “Coffee Ring Effect”, a characteristic drying behavior of liquids containing dispersed particles. The goal is to find simple strategies towards homogeneous drying of particle dispersions.
