The subject matter falls into a few distinct areas (often with overlap):

Crystal networks in 3D euclidean space via 2D hyperbolic tilings

Biomorphs, biomineralisation

Periodic minimal surfaces: bi- and poly-continuous space partitions

"Hard" framework materials: Zeolites, Metallo-organic frameworks, Novel carbon nanofoam, etc.

Soft matter: Lyotropic liquid crystals, microemulsions, block copolymers

Networks and complex systems
