Computational Thinking: Building Bridges between Physical Models and Statistical Inference

Seminar | May 9 | 12-1:30 p.m. | 1011 Evans Hall

 Fernando Perez, University of California, Berkeley

 Department of Statistics

The scientific traditions of physics and applied mathematics have focused mainly on defining simplified models of the world amenable to analytical and numerical approximation. Today, the flood of real-world data at unprecedented levels of resolution and diversity creates opportunity for building richer scientific descriptions that combine statistical inference with "classical" models.

Order and Chaos*: Collective Behavior of Crowded Drops in Microfluidic Systems: *Crowded droplet breakup HydrodynAmics not Ordered but Stochastic

Seminar | May 9 | 12-1 p.m. | Soda Hall, Wozniak Lounge

 Prof. Sindy KY Tang, Assistant Professor, Stanford University, Department of Mechanical Engineering

 Berkeley Sensor & Actuator Center

Droplet microfluidics, in which micro-droplets serve as individual reactors, has enabled a range of high-throughput biochemical processes. This talk examines the collective behavior of drops in a concentrated emulsion by tracking the dynamics and the fate of individual drops. Our results represent a new type of collective order and have practical use in on-chip droplet manipulation.
