Yuri Gerelli completed his undergraduate and graduate studies in physics at the University of Parma focusing on the use of neutron scattering techniques for the investigation of soft matter systems. In 2011, he began working at the Institut Laue-Langevin (Grenoble, France), initially as post-doctoral fellow and then as coordinator for the Partnership for Soft Condensed Matter. In 2020, he joined the Marche Polytechnic University (Ancona, Italy) as assistant professor. His research interests are the understanding of the structural rearrangements taking place in models of biological membranes and the investigation of the structure and dynamics of self-assembling systems in solution and at interfaces. He can be found on Twitter @YGerelli.

How do you feel about Soft Matter as a place to publish research on this topic?
For people like me, who are working at the triple point for physics, chemistry and biology, Soft Matter offers a perfect solution to publicize our findings to a very relevant community of researchers but it also represents a place where to find new and exciting ideas for future experiments.
