Personal profile


“I wish to create new materials from colloidal building blocks: materials that spontaneously organize themselves into functional structures, or paints with color defined by their structure, not pigments.”

Research profile

Janne-Mieke Meijer is an Assistant Professor in the Soft Matter and Biological Physics group in the Applied Physics department of Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) and core member of the Institute for Complex Molecular Systems (ICMS). Her research focuses on complex colloids and their self-assembly to address the influence of building block properties, interactions and overall assembly kinetics on the superstructures that form. With a specific focus on the formation of order/disorder, and a strong emphasis on crystallization and defect structure analysis. The ultimate goal is to control the spontaneous organization of colloids to develop new materials with unique mechanical, optical or electronic properties.

Meijer has a background in self-assembly, self-organization and dynamics of anisotropic colloids; crystallization, defect formation and defect engineering; driven assembly, jamming and glass formation; and using complex colloids to understand fundamental problems on a single-particle level.

Academic background

Janne-Mieke Meijer holds a BSc in Chemistry (2006), a cum laude MSc in Nanomaterials (2009) and a PhD in Physical Chemistry (2015), all from Utrecht University. She then moved to Sweden for a year of postdoctoral research at Lund University and from there to Germany for two years of research at Universität Konstanz, on an Alexander von Humboldt Foundation fellowship grant. Early 2019, Meijer returned to the Netherlands to work at the University of Amsterdam on a Veni grant. Mid-2020, she joined Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) as an assistant professor.
