Shuaijun gave a sound-bite presentation about his work on transport of soft particles in porous media at the 12th Northeast Complex Fluids and Soft Matter (NCS) Workshop at Manhattan College. Ali and Chunsheng presented two posters about their respective work on dual-gel 3D culture model and development of nanoporous film. Well done, everyone!
Our collaborative work with Zi Chen’s group at Dartmouth College entitled “Porosity-tunable structures with “fossilized” bubbles” has been accepted for publication in ACS Applied Polymer Materials. Congratulations!
Dr. Fan co-organized and chaired the first Flow and Transport in Porous Media Symposium in SES (Society of Engineering Science 56th Annual Technical Meeting, Oct 13-15, Washington University in St. Louis). Shuaijun presented his work on “Fluid flow with suspended soft particles in porous media” at the meeting. Well done!
Dr. Fan gave a talk at the Polymer Program Seminar at UConn, on Oct. 11th. Thanks for the invitation and host of Prof. Luyi Sun, and all the inspiring meetings!
Dr. Fan received an NSF grant to study the packing structure and stability of foams and emulsions in microgravity. In collaboration with Prof. Charles Maldarelli, and our implementation partner, we will develop microfluidic platforms for this study and send them to ISS National Lab!
Shuaijun presented a poster entitled “Motion of a soft elastic sphere in a microfluidic constrictive channel” at the 11th Northeastern Complex Fluids & Soft Matter Workshop at New Jersey Institute of Technology on May 23rd, 2019.
Marta Ruiz, a PhD student from University of Barcelona, joined the group on March 15, 2019 and will stay for ~6 months to work on microfluidic generation of giant unilamellar vesicles. Welcome!
Shuaijun will give an oral presentation on March 8th at APS March Meeting 2019 about our work “Motion of a soft elastic sphere through a constrictive channel.”
Ali will give an oral presentation on March 7th at APS March Meeting 2019 about our work on “Dual-gel dual-porosity 3D cell culture model for studying interstitial flow-induced mechanotransduction.”
Itung Chen joined the group in January 2019 to conduct microfluidics related research. Welcome!
