Tiffany runs the Edinburgh Complex Fluids Partnership (www.edinburghcomplexfluids.com) working to help companies with product innovation and providing consultancy in formulation science, processing and product characterization. Tiffany draws on the knowledge of the Soft Matter Physics Reserach Group, at the University of Edinburgh, on dispersions, emulsions, gels, liquid crystals and bacteria behaviour to help solve problems and develop innovative solutions for industry. ECFP works with companies from a wide range of industries including the pharamaceutical, cosmetic, food and drink and agrochemical sectors.
Tiffany’s academic research interests are in the self assembly of colloids through anisotropic solvents such as liquid crystals.
Tiffany is a member of the Young Academy of Scotland and is on the Member's Advisory Group of the Society of Chemical Industry.
