The School is delighted to announce that Dr Mike Smith has been awarded a prestigious Royal Society University Research Fellowship in the Physics Department at Nottingham University starting October 2012. He will undertake a project entitled ‘Extensional flow and jamming of concentrated colloidal suspensions’.
Concentrated suspensions of particles form the basis of many everyday fluids: toothpaste, blood, ink, soil. The understanding, controlling and modifying of flows of colloidal fluids has relevance to a wide variety of practical situations: manufacturing process design, understanding why blood vessels block, or accurately controlling droplet detachment in inkjet printing.
Further details of Dr Smith’s work can be found on his website: http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/~ppzmis
