Marcel Rey started his post-doc at the Physics Department of the University of Gothenburg on 1st August 2022. His research is funded by a Marie-Curie Individual Fellowship with Grant No. 101064381.
Marcel received a PhD degree in Chemical-Engineering from the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany. In his thesis, he focused on the self-assembly behavior of soft colloidal particles confined at liquid interfaces.
In the Soft Matter Lab, Marcel will investigate the “Coffee Ring Effect”, a characteristic drying behavior of liquids containing dispersed particles. The goal is to find simple strategies towards homogeneous drying of particle dispersions.
Giuseppe Pesce starts his employment as a researcher at the Physics Department of the University of Gothenburg on 30th March 2022.
Giuseppe has a PhD degree in Physics from the University of Naples, Italy, where he was working for several years. His field of expertise is laser spectroscopy and optical tweezers used for several experiments, in particular for microrheology and statistical mechanics.
During his employment, Giuseppe will work on a project about optical tweezers combined with deep learning for construction of scalable quantum dots arrays and on automatisation of a double optical tweezers system to stretch biomolecules.
