CONGRATULATIONS: Ibrahim won the prize for best poster at NY-BEST. Nice!
WELCOME! Peter Bork is visiting us for a month from Copenhagen, studying fluid dynamics of the glymphatic system.
PUBLISHED: Our paper “Flow of cerebrospinal fluid is driven by arterial pulsations and is reduced in hypertension” will appear in Nature Communications and our paper Transcranial optical imaging reveals a pathway for optimizing the delivery of immunotherapeutics to the brain has been published in JCI Insight.
IN THE NEWS: A team including Rakan and Doug won $1M for solar panels and grid-scale storage at U of R. Our work on drug delivery was featured by Yahoo! News and the URMC Newsroom.
UPCOMING: Doug will give physics seminars at Mount Holyoke and Georgia Tech in November. Ben, Thomas, Bitong, Ruy, Ibrahim, Jeff, and Doug will speak at APS DFD in November, and Rebeca will present a poster. Rebeca will also present at SHPE 2018 in November.

Despite the ubiquity of fluid mixing—think cream in coffee, plankton in Earth's oceans, storm systems in our atmosphere—mixing is devilishly difficult to predict, control, or understand. We study the space- and time-dynamics of flows and the materials being mixed in them. Read more, watch Doug's overview or contact us.
