Undergraduate Researchers Join the Group

Thomas Coons and Sydney Holway  have joined the Guasto Lab to study particulate transport. Sydney (Tufts Physics, 2018) is a  Tufts Summer Scholar (supervised by collaborator Prof. Tim Atherton), who will be working jointly with Thomas (Tufts ME, 2019) to use combination of numerical and microfluidic techniques to study clogging in constricted flows.
