Dr Charlie Wand (he/him)

Lecturer in Natural Sciences, University of Exeter

I’m a lecturer in Natural Sciences at the University of Exeter working on computer simulations of complex fluids and soft matter systems. The work I do crosses the boundaries of chemistry, physics, and engineering and gives me the opportunity to work closely with industrial partners whilst undertaking fundamental research.

About Me

I’m originally from Swindon and now live in Exeter. I spend my spare time drawing, going to the theatre, and playing with my dog, Beatrix. Read more about me, including my CV, here

Research Topics

I use computer simulations to investigate physical properties of soft materials with industrial applications. These materials are found all around us in everyday life, from shampoo to paint through to LCD screens. Read more about it here

Equality, Inclusion and Diversity

I am actively working to promote inclusion and diversity within STEM, particularly from the LGBTQ+ community. Read more about it here
