Conference of Etienne Piantanida

Conference of Etienne Piantanida (Institut de Science et d’Ingénierie Supramoléculaires UMR7006 Université de Strasbourg, France.) about « Nanocomposite hydrogel for biomedical applications ».     Abstract: Hydrogels are materials that can entrap a high amount of water (up to 98%) and, thanks to their porous structure that allows oxygen and nutrients permeation [1], they are […]

Multi-functional hydrogel capsules

During this presentation, I will present our work on shaping hydrogels with a core-shell structure. Features of the hydrogel membrane in terms of permeability and mechanical properties or the ability to make composite hydrogels will be reported. Flow of a concentrated dispersion of capsules, where friction between objects can be tuned, will also be reported. […]

Study of complex flows

In this seminar, I will address two separate topics involving complex flows. First, I will discuss evaporation dynamics for large surfaces that generate convective flow due to the density difference between the vapor and the ambient air. Two geometries will be discussed, the horizontal circular film and the vertical rectangular film. I will show that […]

Imbibition, drying and cavitation in nanoporous media

Many porous media contain fluids confined at the nanoscale, including a variety of natural (rocks, plant vessels) and industrial (concrete, filters) materials. In this presentation, I will discuss the dynamics of a few specific phenomena that occur in materials containing nanopores, including capillary condensation and cavitation, which I have investigated at Cornell University using model […]

Combining microdevices and functional droplets in the immune context

Oil-in-water emulsion droplets are deformable particles, with a surface that can be functionalized by biologically adhesive molecules. Having a fluid interface, these molecules are laterally mobile, making the whole microparticle able to interact with immune cells and respond to receptor sollicitations. In this talk, I will present how using emulsion droplets in this context, in […]
