Physics of Soft Matter (dr. Uddalok Sen)

The Physics of Soft Matter team of Dr. Udo Sen is a curiosity-driven bunch who like to study the fluid dynamical aspects of soft matter and biophysics. Questions that keep us up at night are on topics including, but not limited to, elastocapillarity, complex fluids, interfacial flows, multicomponent evaporation, biophysics, microbial motility, active matter, droplet dynamics, lubrication flows, and physics of life. We are particularly interested in key fundamental questions in both natural phenomena and industrial applications. To tackle them, we transform them into lab-scale bench-top experiments, and theoretical and/or numerical modeling exercises, and identify routes towards solutions.
