Associate professor and senior lecturer in physical chemistry specialized in the field of colloid and interface science. Author of both theoretical and experimental works about self-assembly of amphiphilic molecules that have received a great deal of international attention. In his research MB has mainly been focused on the problem to predict the size and geometry of self-assembled aggregates (micelles, vesicles, microemulsions etc) from the chemical structure of amphiphilic molecules such as surfactants and lipids. His experimental competence is in the field of structural analysis and particle size determination with light, small-angle x-ray and neutron scattering. At the moment MB is author of more than 50 publications in leading international scientific journals which together have more than 900 citations.
