[04/12/14] SK was presented as a Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS) for his ``exceptional contributions to the physics enterprise'' at the annual Division of Fluid Dynamics conference of the APS-DFD in San Francisco, USA (23-25 Nov 2014). The honour was given specifically ``For pioneering and rigorous contributions to fundamental fluid dynamics, particularly interfacial flows and dynamics of moving contact lines, statistical mechanics of inhomogeneous liquids, and coarse graining of complex multiscale systems''. A video is also available of the presentation of the fellowship, and the news is reported on the central Imperial College News Site.
[28/10/14] Group member Dr Marc Pradas recently started a new faculty position in Applied Mathematics at The Open University. His new web page is available here.
[07/10/14] Congratulations to group member Sebastian Krumscheid, who successfully defended his doctoral thesis in his PhD viva examination recently. Sebastian's internal and external examiners were Dr Almut Veraat (IC, Maths) and Prof Sebastian Reich (Institut für Mathematik, Universität Potsdam, Germany), respectively.
