Writing is a part of any honours or PhD project, and it usually models itself on published scientific works like journal articles. Everyone has a different style and approach, but one thing you will always hear from me is to START WRITING EARLY. Beginning researchers almost always assume they should wait until they are done all experiments before beginning writing, but you should start as soon as possible.
This is because writing requires organization to form a narrative.
Hi there! Welcome to the revamped Nonequilibrium.com AKA SoftMatterHacker.com!
What was once a single page CV for an industrial researcher, now serves as the web site for an academic group researching complex fluid microstructures and flows.
The site archives our Publications, notifies you of News, and shares tips and techniques from our work in a sort of Wiki that is tagged based on content.
The site also lists current, new, and past projects of the group for interested students and collaborators to get an idea of what we are doing and where we could do some work together.
We are the Complex Fluids Group at UNSW.
Fluids containing small amounts of colloids, polymers, and surfactants can exhibit highly non-ideal behaviour with fascinating dynamics. Complex fluids are a key part of most major products and manufacturing processes. Our group uses advanced imaging and rheology techniques to understand fundamental properties of complex fluid components, specifically: shape, structure, and flow.
Shape - Particle shape affects advanced material strength, reactivity, and biological uptake.
