On the 10th of September, at the online kick-off meeting of the ActiveMAtter ITN, the ESRs presented themselves to the other members of the network. A short video in which Danne van Roon introduces himself can be found below.
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.

Danne van Roon started his PhD program in Physics at FCID as one of the Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) of the ActiveMatter ITN.
His work will focus on modeling and simulating the dynamics of mixtures of active and passive particles in evaporating droplets.
He will conduct his research under the supervision of Prof. Nuno Araújo.
