Dr. Shibayev's does research in the areas of “Soft” condensed matter physics and physical chemistry. This includes the structure, phase behaviour of self-organised materials at nano- and meso- scales, electrical and optical properties of “soft” materials, in particular chiral polymers and liquid crystals. He also studies interaction of electromagnetic fields with “soft” materials; synthesis of responsive polymers, self-organised and supramolecular structures, molecular structures for photonic applications, and development of advanced “soft” materials.
