Condensed and Living Matter Seminar: "Bacterial swimming: internal clock and fluid environment"

Nuris Figueroa-Morales (Penn State University)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A6

Bacterial suspensions are ubiquitous in naturally occurring and man-made scenarios. Their transport determines how infections spread and microbiota organize in guts or in soils. In addition, bacteria can turn common…



Condensed and Living Matter Seminar: "Fluid-structure interactions for energy and climate"

Ching-Yao Lai (Columbia University)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A6

Understanding the interactions between soft structures and fluid flows is critical for a broad range of applications including energy, biotechnology, geophysics, and climate science. When fluid flows through a…



Condensed and Living Matter Seminar: "Deconstructing how cellular interactions ensure robust morphogenesis"

Hannah Yevick (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A4

Correct tissue shape is essential for its proper function. It is therefore crucial that a developing tissue robustly assembles into its target structure. To change shape, cells within a tissue must exert…



Condensed and Living Matter Seminar: "Odyssey in the Critical Landscape: Quantum Phase Transitions beyond the Landau Paradigm"

Zhen Bi (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A6

Phase transitions are among the most complex and intriguing phenomena in physics. The Landau-Ginzburg-Wilson-Fisher theory of phase transitions, associated with the onset of a spontaneously broken…
