Johan will visit the group of Prof. Ilya Karlin at ETH Zürich to work on wetting and multiphase problems using the entropic lattice-Boltzmann method.
We are now sitting at Teknikringen 8, fluid physics laboratory. The reason for this move is to create a more cooperative environment within the research group, initiate interdisciplinary collaborations as well as increase our own experimental activities. The lab personnel gave us a very warm welcome today and we are looking forward to our time and research in our new home.
Simon Pasche, who completed his doctoral degree in EPFL, has joined our research team as a post-doctoral researcher. He will carry out numerical simulations of fluid-structure-interaction problems consisting of moving fluids over different complex surfaces using finite element method (FEM). More specifically, he will look into stability of surface configuration, which include a two-phase or two-component interface, and optimisation of surface roughness. Welcome, Simon!
There is an opening for postdoc applications in KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Department of Mechanics, Linné FLOW Centre. The postdoc research topic is not fixed, but can be developed within the list of specified research areas. If you are interested, feel free to contact us and discuss possible research topics as well as support letter. More detailed information about the application and instructions for how to apply can be found in KTH web page.
Ricard Guillaume from ENS de Lyon has joined our research team for an internship. He will stay with us until the end of July and work with experimental measurement of flow in microchannel above elastic pillars made from polymers. Through his internship, Guillaume will gain experience working with microfluidics, and determine possibilities and limitations of using optical coherence tomography (OCT) for flow and pillar displacement measurements. Welcome!
Welcome to our new research group website. We will use this site to disseminate the publications and activities of the Fluids and Surfaces Group (FSG) at KTH.
Since our research group will expand in the coming years, this website will also be used to reach out to Bachelor/Master/PhD students, visiting researchers as well as new contacts with industry.
So, please feel free to contact us if you have any ideas and comments regarding our research!
