Moving to London !

My contract in Lyon has ended on January 31st. Therefore, I am really excited to join the Garbin Lab at Imperial College in London ! We will study here the non-linear properties of soft materials through bubble excitation.

And quite soon, we will submit (with the people from Lyon) our experimental paper on peculiar spatio-temporal patterns observed in shear-thickening, cornstarch suspensions.

Spatio-temporal plot of the tangential velocity field (averaged in the gradient direction), plotted as a function of the vorticity direction (z) and time in a 41% cornstarch suspension solicited above the critical (DST) stress.
