On September the 10th the first meeting between all ESRs and PIs in our network took place. During this meeting Carolina van Baalen, ESR from ETH Zurich, presented herself and her project by means of a short video. Curious what her work looks like as a first year doctoral student in Active Matter? Have a look at her video, in which she will give you a glimpse of her research on active colloids at liquid interfaces!
The ActiveMatter PI+ESRs meeting took place on 10 September 2020. Because of the current travel restrictions and regulations imposed to hinder the spread of the CoViD-19 epidemics, the meeting was held online.
The aim of the meeting was to give an update to all the members on the progress of the ActiveMatter network.
Currently 12 of the 15 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) have already been recruited and could started their project. During the meeting the ESRs had the opportunity to introduce themselves to the rest of the network and to present their research project.

Carolina van Baalen started her PhD program in Physics at ETH Zurich as one of the Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) of the ActiveMatter ITN.
Her work focuses on active colloids confined at complex liquid-liquid interfaces.
She will conduct her research under the supervision of Prof. Lucio Isa.
