Zvonimir Dogic obtained his BA and Ph.D in Physics from Brandeis University. After postdoctoral positions in Research Center Julich in Germany and University of Pennsylvania, he was a Research Fellow at Rowland Institute at Harvard from 2003 till 2007. In 2007 he started at an Assistant Professor in Physics at Brandeis University and was promoted to Associated Professor in 2010. In 2017 he moved to University of California at Santa Barbara.
Research interests of our group are primarily experimental, and span both equilibrium and non-equilibrium phenomena. We use various biological architectures to create soft materials that exhibit novel physics that is not easily accessible by using purely synthetic methods.
