Soft Matter PhD-students Lunch meetings
During the spring and autumn of 2009 we will organize “The Soft Matter PhD students lunch meetings”. The first meeting will be held on the 28th of January 12-13 at “Hyllan”. This is next to the main restaurant at campus, if you don´t know how to get there please let us know or ask a colleague.
Dates for this autumn
17th of December.
There is a limited number of seats available. If you are interested, please register by sending Anders Gunnarsson an email and specify particular requests regarding the food (vegetarian, allergies etc).
The last lunch seminar this fall will be on the 17th of December at Hyllan. The orator will be Markus Andersson from Applied Surface Chemistry at the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering.
Hope to see you there!
The organizing committee
18th of November
The orator will be Maria Gröndahl, CTO at the Chalmers spin-off company, Xylophane AB.
21st of October
The orator will be PhD student Jonas Nordström from the Condensed Matter Physics group:
The Condensed Matter Physics group at the Department of Applied Physics conducts research in a variety of different areas. Main focus of the group is on ion conducting materials and relaxation dynamics in colloidal systems and glasforming liquids.
My goal with this short presentation is to give an overview of the research going on at the group and to discuss the experimental techniques that we master in an effort to promote more collaboration between the "soft" groups at Chalmers.
23rd of September
Next lunch seminar will be on the 23rd of September at Hyllan. The orator will be Rolf Andersson from SCA Hygiene products who will talk about "research through open innovation".
29th of April
The orators will be professor Fredrik Höök and Soft Matter PhD student Magnus Jonsson from Biological Physics, Chalmers. This will be an unique opportunity to learn more about the ongoing activities at Biological Physics with focus on biointerfaces and ultrasensitive surface-based biosensors.
25th of Mars
The orator of the upcoming meeting will be assistent professor Hans Wyss from TU Eindhoven. His experimental work uses techniques such as rheology and microrheology, light scattering, microfluidics, multi- particle tracking, or confocal microscopy to study the mechanics, the dynamics and the structure of soft materials.
26th of February
The orator our first meeting will be assistent professor Martin Andersson from applied surface chemistry, founder of Promimic, a Chalmers innovation company. You will gain insight on conducting research in a company and the differences compared with academia. Furthermore you will learn of the possibilities as well as challenges when it comes to starting up new companies based on research ideas.
