Erich Schuster, PhD in Physics, post doc at SIK/Chalmers.
Research interests: soft biomaterials, diffusion and mass-transport within heterogeneous hierarchical structures, mathematical modeling
Erich Schuster started his post doc position within the SuMo Biomaterials center in August 2011. His project focuses on the design of materials with tailored mass-transport properties. A technique called fluorescence recovery after photo bleaching (FRAP) will be utilized and further developed to pursue this goal. In order to better understand the mechanism of diffusion in heterogeneous soft materials, the influence of the intermolecular interactions needs to be further investigated. FRAP with binding will be used to characterize the interactions between probe particles and soft matter systems, and to provide a more detailed input for ongoing mathematical diffusion and flow simulations within the center.
