I collaborated recently with Dennis Bakhuis and Sander Huisman and others at Physics of Fluids in this cool project making mayonnaise by brute force and not relying and surfactants or stabilizers, only *very* vigorous steering. Of course the resulting emulsion is totally metastable and not tasty at all… 😅
Nevertheless, it was a titanic task for Dennis Bakhuis and Pim Bulle to measure the droplet size manually with a microscope immersed in this high turbulent flow to capture thousands of water-in-oil and oil-in-droplets and to realize that there’s an asymmetry that we fail to understand! So I’m looking forward for more.

Quite happy to see our recent paper “Particle monolayer assembly in evaporating salty colloidal droplets” in Physical Review Fluids suggested by the editors! Congrats to Laura and Myrthe for their hard work!

We are not doing research on any COVID19 topic, but we support and encourage all those who are doing (and can do it)!
Stay safe and hope to see you soon 🙏
