Welcome! This site gives an overview of research conducted by Dr. Clark in the Physics Department at the Naval Postgraduate School.

Fundamental studies of soft materials

Dr. Clark's research interests are in fundamental properties of soft matter, primarily particulate media (e.g., grains, powders, dense suspensions, and colloids), with a broad range of defense-relevant applications. He uses a range of experimental, computational, and theoretical techniques to understand how these materials respond to external loading or driving, such as shear forces or impact.
