Next week is the annual ACS Colloid and Surface Science Symposium — last year’s was very good and this one looks like it will be too. Hopefully there is as much good ramen in Pittsburgh as there was in Philadelphia. I’ll be giving two talks, both on the Tuesday. The first concerns methods for predicting and characterising the influence of polydispersity on a phase-separating fluid (with Mike Evans):
The second is about some more recent work on lipid bilayers, specifically how domain formation couples to asymmetry between the leaflets (with Peter Olmsted):
A few of us from Georgetown’s Institute for Soft Matter will be there, and I’m also looking forward to catching up with Ian Williams (he of the amazing colloidal corral). See you there!
