Professor Eugene Terentjev

Eugene Michael Terentjev, MSc (Moscow State), PhD (Moscow), MA. Professor of Polymer Physics. John Baldwin Fellow in Physics.

Queens' College has a very strong Natural Science community, with many teaching Fellows covering almost all angles of the Physical and Biological sciences, and several Research Fellows and PhD students who also contribute to teaching and an overall atmosphere of shared interest and enthusiasm for science. The student-run Milner Society unites this community and offers a range of both social and academic activities.


I am an experienced theoretician in soft condensed matter physics. My research mainly focuses on structure and dynamical properties of complex materials: polymer systems, liquid crystals and colloids, with an increasing impact in molecular and cell biophysics (biological polymers, tissues and cell mechanics). My multidisciplinary research group combines the chemical synthesis facility, physical experimental laboratory and theoretical modelling.


I am the Professor of Polymer Physics at the Cavendish Laboratory. I lecture a variety of courses in the areas of: thermal, statistical, soft matter and biological physics.
