Welcome to the Marin Lab!. We are based in the Physics of Fluids chair at the University of Twente, also part of the Max-Planck Center for Complex Fluid Dynamics.

We are a group of curious people interested in things living in confined systems: particles inside droplets, droplets inside channels, particles inside channels, bacteria inside droplets, people between walls or confined by white lines on the green grass. We are mainly driven by the observation of beautiful and very unexpected phenomena, and work very hard to describe them,  sometimes we even manage to explain them! This is what drives our work.

So if  you are a classifier-type, our work could be roughly classified somewhere between Physics and Engineering, Soft Matter also works for us!

They are superheroes, but they need your help, if you never donated, there is no better time as now, you might be two clicks from saving a life @MSF #HelpTurkey #HelpSyria

It’s been so much fun to work on this massive collaboration! both workshop + paper @softmatter. Jointly lead with Liesbeth Janssen @TUeindhoven, Nuno Araujo @namaraujo and Giorgio Volpe @Giorgio_Volpe. Thanks specially to the @lorentzcenter which made it possible!

Ever wondered how to steer self-organisation through confinement?

This perspective reports the discussion at a @lorentzcenter workshop organised with @AlvaroGuM, @namaraujo, L. Janssen.
