My fabricates a uniform layer of core-shell particles by inkjet deposition on a clean or functionalised surface. I have extended this to more complex ‘smart’ surfaces that trigger a response under changes in pH or temperature.
Jack G. J. GoodallPhD student
After joining the Baingroup as a PhD student in 2016 I have been involved in fundamental research on the internal flows and deposits of inkjet printed picolitre droplets with a focus on solvent mixtures and simple solutions.
Rachel J. GoodbandPhD Student
Lisong YangSenior Researcher
I am a physicist by training. My research work in the Bain group is focusing on developing techniques on characterising dynamic properties of fluids and understanding the link between microscopic structure of the fluid and macroscopic behaviour of jet/drop/film. The fundamental research may benefit inkjet printing industry and beyond.
Jing ShiPostdoctral Researcher
My research is on evaporation and drying of pico-litre droplets. In my first sub-project, I explored the drying behaviours and deposition patterns of colloidal droplets with addition of nanoparticles. In my current project, I am studying the influences of surfactants on the drying of aqueous droplets.
Walter HamaPhD Student
My project aims to investigate the important interfacial physical and chemical processes involved in the removal of a model food soil from model tableware surfaces in automatic dishwashers and how these processes are influenced by local hydrodynamics under isothermal conditions.
Matthew RoylePhD Student
Most of the time you will find me in the lab either exploring the phase behaviour of Limonene microemulsions or using stopped-flow techniques to observe their interaction with oil. I also like to help with the day-to-day maintenance of the lab and organising social activities with the group!
Seth PricePhD student
Hi, I’m Seth, and I’m the group’s sole theoretician! Colin has me working on the simulation of droplets evaporating in wells, meaning I spend lots of my time deriving PDEs and solving them on Mathematica.
Zhida HuangPhD Student
My name is Zhida Huang and I have been trying to find out the evaporation of sessile droplets in selected wells with different geometry features.
Nicola J. R. HaynesPhD student
Corey J. StewartPhD Student
Hi! I’m Corey. I’ve just started in the Bain group and my project is in the area of inkjet printing. I’m currently investigating the interactions between picolitre-sized sessile droplets.
Oliver BurnhamPhD student
My research focuses on applying optical trapping techniques to ultralow interfacial tension (ULIFT) emulsion systems. I aim to optically trap and deform ULIFT droplets of a polymerisable monomer, and to polymerise the droplets. Combining the method with microfluidic device should allow the production of micron-scale beads with precisely controlled shape.
