Last November 7th, 2018, I had the great privilege to open the First Congress on Nanobioengineering, as part of the inauguration of the Centro de Investigación en Biotecnología y Nanotoxicología (CIBYN), from the Faculty of Chemistry of the Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo Leon (UANL), Monterrey, Mexico.
Our work on Gas bubble evolution on microstructured silicon substrates, is now published in Energy and Environmental Science. The result of a fruitful collaboration with colleagues from UC3M and Physics of Fluids group, has detailed the formation, growth and detachment of gas bubbles on electrodes of relevance to many gas-producing processes in industry.
In a short interview, I was able to share some of my dreams and past activities at the University of Twente. You can read the short text here.
Guerrilla Science: Survival Strategies of a Cuban Physicist by Ernesto Altshuler My rating: 5 of 5 stars This book is a beautiful story about science, humor and in some instances, sadness. The author uses several anecdotes in his story that at the same time teaches us something about his top-notch scientific research. For most people, […]
A collaboration with colleagues from the Universidad de Sevilla gives monodisperse bubbles with a twist. Novel swirl flow‑focusing microfluidic device for the production of monodisperse microbubbles. A link to the publication can be found here.
After organizing an event in 2014, Pathways to Solar Hydrogen Technologies, at the prestigious Lorentz Centre, we managed to coordinate the input of 45+ co-authors and produced a paper recently accepted in Energy and Environmental Science. The link to the paper can be found here.
Today I will be giving a Keynote presentation at SAFE2018. This event is organized within the three technical Dutch universities of Twente, Delft and Eindhoven. The conference is organized for the PhD students and is intended for the students to expand their network and share their research ideas which provide a unique opportunity for future collaborations. […]
As part of a collaboration with my colleague Ivo Peters, I will be giving a seminar on April 18th at the Aerodynamics and Flight Mechanics group. Besides talking about bubbles, we will also play with some “laser bubbles”.
Last February 19th I was invited to give a lecture entitled Microfluidics and micro-fabrication tricks to improve energy efficiencies of ultrasonic cavitation and electrolysis. A beautiful new building, and a great audience.
The most recent “pit” story, as a collaboration’s result, together with colleagues at TU Darmstad: Bubble nucleation from micro-crevices in a shear flow.
