Group members Tim Atherton, Badel Mbanga, Chris Burke, Kate Voorhes and Ian Hunter got together today for a wonderful holiday lunch at local restaurant Oasis in Medford. We’d like to wish Happy Holidays to all of our blog readers!
Badel Mbanga and Chris Burke today presented at the 57th New England Complex Fluids Workshop, held at Boston University and hosted by the Bansil group. Thanks to BU for hosting such an enjoyable conference!
I was delighted to spend the morning today at the Boston Museum of Science judging high school senior science projects from Fenway High School. I was really impressed by the high quality of the projects and the number of students who showed both aptitude and interest in studying science further at university; I was […]
Graduate student Dave Thomas gave talk A4.08 “Thermotropic Liquid Crystalline Side Chain Elastomers” as part of a session on Elastomers, Gels and Liquid Crystals.
Undergraduate Matt Eakle […]
We’re grateful to the College of Arts and Sciences at Tufts for writing a nice article featuring our recent residency in the Spicer group at the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia. We were able to do the residency because of a Tufts University International Research Program grant generously funded by an anonymous donor, […]
We’re delighted to announce that our new paper, published in collaboration with Cristian Staii’s lab is now available online at Physical Review E. We’re particularly excited to congratulate undergraduate researchers Dan Rizzo (the first author!) and Matt Wiens on their first peer reviewed paper—well done!

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.
Today, I gave the invited colloquium at the Liquid Crystal Institute of Kent State University. It’s quite wonderful to be invited to Kent, because the LCI is one of the most important centers in the world for liquid crystal research. As well as talking, I got to meet many of the
Undergraduate researcher Kate Voorhes today presented research from her summer project at the Summer Scholars Poster Session. Kate received a scholarship to carry out the work over this summer, mentored by Tim Atherton and postdoctoral researcher Badel Mbanga.
We’re delighted to announce the continuing program, now in its fourth semester, of Tufts Condensed Matter Physics Seminars. This semester, the seminar series is being managed by Cristian Staii’s group and we look forward to welcoming, as in previous semesters, researchers from other departments at Tufts as well as the Greater Boston and New England areas. Talks take place […]
