From the 2nd to the 9th of November 2020, David Bronte Ciriza and Alessandro Magazzù (Post Doc at the CNR-IPCF Messina) have visited the Soft Matter Lab at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden. During their visit, they have been working on a project related to the use of neural networks to improve optical forces calculations. This visit has also served as networking opportunity with the researchers at the Gothenburg University, including the ones that participate in the ActiveMatter network.
On the 10th of September, the first online meeting between all the ESRs and PIs took place. During this meeting, David presented himself and introduced his future work at the CNR by means of this short video. The presentation was followed by time for questions and discussion with other members of the ActiveMatter network.
Are you wondering about what David did before joining the network? Do you want to know a little bit more about his project? Take a look at his presentation video!
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.
