NSF and ERC jetting collaboration

During the month of January, 2022, we had the privilege to have in our lab Prof. Andrew Dickerson from Mechanical, Aerospace, and Biomedical Engineering, University of Tennessee. His visit was made possible due to the agreement between the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the European Research Council (ERC). Andrew’s project ‘Tuning liquid jet and splash dynamics by deformable […]

My ERC project has started!

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 […]

Physics and Industry

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!

Inaugural lecture of a new Investigation Centre in Mexico

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.

Visiting Southampton

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”.  

Visiting Warsaw to kickstart collaboration

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 […]

Visiting scientist at MIT

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!
