Tuesday, August 7, 2018

Rae Robertson-Anderson, Ph.D., Chair of the Physics and Biophysics Department, and Shea Ricketts, senior biophysics major, were featured on local morning news show 'Good Morning San Diego.' They discussed Robertson-Anderson's recently awarded Keck Research Grant and performed a demo using the non-Newtonian fluid 'ooblek'. They described the goals of the research grant to KUSI news anchors, and demonstrated how a simple mixture of cornstarch and water ('ooblek') can exemplify many of the key principles of the autonomous materials proposed in the grant.
