    Surface instability of shear-thickening suspensions down an inclined plane
    A shear-thickening suspension, such as cornstarch particles in water, exhibits a very strange behavior : it flows as milk when gently stirred but turns rock solid under impact. Despite its notoriety, this phenomenon has been understood only recently. Based on this progress, we decided to explore the behavior of (...)

    Emulsion droplets as a model biomimetic system
    Emulsion droplets recapitulate the deformability and surface fluidity of biological objects, in a simpler and tunable fashion. Thus, they can be used as a model biomimetic system to study cell-cell interactions. During this talk, I will demonstrate this use in two different systems : the study of phagocytosis, and (...)

    Reinforcing materials modelling by encoding the structures of defects in crystalline solids into distortion scores
    A perfect crystal is a purely theoretical concept. Real-world crystals contain imperfections, also called defects. Identification and characterization of defects provide the crucial information for interpretation of simulations and experiments that bridge the gap between atomic- and micrometer-scales. But what is (...)
Information for the speakers

The audience is composed of people with rather heterogeneous backgrounds including specialists in solids, fluids, granular flows, statistical physics... so the idea is to keep your talk understandable by people not necessarily working in your field... The seminar time slot runs from 11am to noon so the best is to make the talk last around 45 minutes to leave some time for discussion.
