Welcome to the website of the Christie group, based in the Department of Materials at Loughborough University.

Our research uses computational methods to look at the structure of amorphous (glassy) materials, to understand how they can be designed and optimised for new applications.  We are especially interested in understanding how these materials degrade when implanted into the body and how this can be controlled to allow the material to deliver therapeutically useful substances to the body at an appropriate rate.
