August 3, 2017

Kaapi With Kuriosity lecture titled “Fluids everywhere – flows on all scales”  Lecture by Prof. Julia Mary Yeomans organised by  International Centre for Theoretical Sciences, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research and Jawaharlal Nehru Planetarium.

Liquids and gases are moving all aound us; the wind, rain, drops of dew on a spider’s web. But what happens on micriscopic lengths – how do bacteria swim? Or at large scales in planetary atmospheres – fastens your seat belts, here comes turbulence. We will take a tour through the world of fludis and flows from lotus leaves and stay dry surfaces to cloud formations and why planes can take off.

Julia Mary Yeomans obtained her MA in DPhil in Physics from the University of Oxford. She spent two years as a post-doc at Cornell University, USA. Soon after that, she joined the Rudolf Peierls Centre for Theoretical Physics at Oxford where she is now Professor of Physics and a Fellow of St.Hilda’s College.

Julia works in theoratical and computational physics, particularly statistical physics, hydrodynamics, soft condensed matter and biophysics. Among her current research interests are active systems, liquid crystals and the interactions of fluids with structured surfaces. She was elected Fellow of the Royal Society in 2013. Julia has four daughters and enjoys hiking, orienteering, tango and running.

Kaapi With Kuriosity is a monthly public lecture series organised by the International Centre for Theoretical Sciences (ICTS-TIFR), in collaboration with the Jawaharlal Nehru Planetarium and other educational institutions in Bengaluru.
