title：Dynamic relaxation of active and nonequilibrium materials
Through the magic of ‘active matter,’ which converts chemical energy into mechanical work to drive emergent properties, biology solves a myriad of seemingly impossible physical challenges. I will present my lab’s efforts to develop new fluid mechanics models to direct the flow of matter enabled by the use of “active” molecules found within living systems. We design 2D composite materials with tunable inclusions of lipid domains embedded within an active elastic network. These lipid inclusions enable exquisite control over the phase separation and material properties (like failure resistance) of 2D composite materials. If time permits, I will also present our recent work on model predictive control and learning of many-body colloidal interactions driven by active and hydrodynamic forces.
