17 May 2018 - 6:45pm to 8:00pm

On May 17th the Institute of Physics and Oxford University will be hosting a public talk by Professor Julia Yeomans, researching in the Physics of Soft and Biological matter.

Talk description

Active materials such as bacteria, molecular motors and self-propelled colloids, are Nature’s engines. They continuously transform chemical energy from their environment to mechanical work. Because they are tiny, the engines operate in a very different environment to manmade machines, where they have to contend with crowding, strong fluctuations and high viscosities.
