Department of Mathematical Sciences

Dennis Eriksson
Anders Södergren 

Department of Mechanics and Maritime Sciences

Henrik Ström, who studies systems where small reactive particles move in complex geometries. These can be sensors, for example, where you want to be able to detect as quickly as possible whether a certain type of particle is present in a liquid. Read more about his project "Migration, mixing and modulation in reactive Brownian systems of arbitrary geometric complexity."​
