Cristina Marchetti is honored at the 118th Statistical Mechanics Conference, Dec. 17-19, 2017 at Rutgers University.
David Yllanes, Marco Leoni, and Cristina Marchetti’s paper was accepted in the New Journal of Physics on September 25, 2017.
The accepted manuscript titled, “How many dissenters does it take to disorder a flock?” can be found here.
Several group members participated in the 2017 Soft Matter GRS and GRC at Colby-sawyer and presented their work.
Cristina Marchetti gave an invited talk on “Dynamics and Topology of Active Liquid Crystals’’ at the 2017 Gordon Research Conference on the Chemistry & Physics of Liquids in Holderness, NH.
Cristina Marchetti presented lectures on Active Matter at the XIV International Summer School on Fundamental problems in Statistical Physics in Bruneck, Italy
Graduate student, Suraj Shankar was one of six graduate students to be selected as a KITP Graduate Fellow for the Fall of 2017. This is a highly competitive, prestigious fellowship, and a unique opportunity for a select group of physics graduate students to spend the Fall at the KITP, participate in KITP research programs, and broaden their understanding of physics in areas of current research. This fellowship is designed to round out the education of top students so that they are well prepared to become good academic postdocs and future faculty positions. Many of the past awardees are now leaders in their field.
Suraj will be mentored by Boris Shraiman – a distinguished theoretical physicist who works on biologically inspired problems and one of four current KITP permanent members.
Congratulations to Suraj on this prestigious honor!

Cristina Marchetti signs the Ehrenfest wall after delivering the Colloquium Ehrenfestii in Leiden on April 19, 2019.
See here for the long and illustrious history of the Colloquium that was started by Paul Ehrenfest in 1912.
The colloquium culminates with the speaker signing the “Ehrenfest’s wall”, a tradition that dates
back to the first colloquia by Einstein, Bohr, Planck and many other great contributors to modern physics.
Cristina Marchetti speaks at the Workshop “Women in Applied Maths and Soft Matter Physics”, 25-28 Oct 2015 Mainz (Germany).
