Several members of the Soft Matter Theory group today attended New.Mech 2013, a one day workshop on the Mechanics of Materials and Structures hosted at Northeastern University in Boston and bringing together over 100 researchers from the New England area in fields as diverse as Physics, Chemistry, Mechanical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science.
Graduate student Chris Burke gave a poster “Arrested Development (of Emulsions)” while undergraduate researcher Kate Voorhes presented her work on “Simulating Defect Textures on Coalescing Nematic Shells”. Tim Atherton, group PI, gave a 4 minute soundbite highlighting this latter recent project.
For those who couldn’t make the conference, we’ve put the posters up below. Here’s Chris’s Poster:
