Rico is currently an ARC Future Fellow and Associate Professor, and leads the Soft Materials and Colloids Laboratory in the School of Chemistry with Dr Boon Teo.

His group’s research is focused on several key areas of soft materials and colloidal systems:
• Novel surfactants and their properties, including pH and light-responsive molecules;
• Carbon nanomaterials (especially graphene oxide) with particular focus on colloidal and interfacial properties;
• Applications of neutron, X-ray and light scattering in studies of soft and self-assembled systems.

Rico has published over 100 papers across a range of topics in surface and colloid science, and works extensively with industry on applications of colloidal systems to practical problems in formulation, food and consumer products.
