This month has been full with lots of great developments (but also plenty of work). Diana van der Ven and Jelle Schoppink have joined the ERC team that will work in the BuBble Gun project: welcome! See their short biosketch in the Team webpage. We also received the visit of high school students Berkan Yildiz […]
This week I have been supervising a group of students to address a challenge brought up by the company Feltest. The 10th edition of the Lorentz Center event Physics with Industry is a great initiative to learn about real-life problems. In our case, we had to visit a paper mill!
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.
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”.
This week I will be visiting my colleague, Prof. Colmenares’s group Catalysis for Sustainable Energy Production and Environmental Protection, from the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences. I will be giving two lectures supported by the National Science Centre (NCN) in Poland within research project Sonata Bis Nr. 2015/18/E/ST5/00306. This project is aimed […]
I will be giving a lecture at the Department Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering, Tandon School of Engineering. This visit has been arranged by Assistant professor Miguel Modestino (http://www.miguelmodestino.com)
I am starting a collaboration with Prof. Ian W. Hunter from the Bioinstrumentation lab, and Prof. Gareth McKinley’s Non-Newtonian Fluid Dynamics Research Group. We want to learn more about thermocavitation and its rheology aspects; let’s see how far we can get at MIT!
