What is microfluidics?


A toolbox for new discoveries
in research


A format for new
technologies


Small, fast, portable, ….


A bridge to research at the
interface of other disciplines


Where biology, chemistry,
engineering, and physics meet!


The scale is the size of porous
media and the cell (or smaller)

Hansen & Quake (2004)

Objectives


Applied mathematics, microfluidics and
materials science for new approaches
towards environmental fluid mechanics
and transport problems


Existing strengths:


Fluid mechanics


Colloid science


Materials


Modeling


Aim to achieve:


New collaborations


Identifying new
questions where
synergies are
possible


Challenge


One talk at a scientific meeting
before June 2012



Reward: Howard buys dinner for you
at the Oxford workshop in Oxford in
January 2012 (restaurant to be
chosen)

Looking forward


Possible informal meeting prior to
the DFD meeting;


Friday or Saturday, November 2011



Workshop 2: Oxford, January 2012



Joint proposal down the road?

Advances via collaborative science and
engineering


The rise of “convergence” science



Identify new questions, new
approaches


Can we combine modeling and
experiment

or


Use one to initiate the other
