Giovanni Ghigliotti

 

I currently hold a research position at  Laboratoire de Physique de la Matière Condensée in Nice (France) where I study the flow properties of concentrated suspensions of rigid particles. I work with Dr. Laurent Lobry.


Earlier this year I completed a two-year post-doctorate with Prof. James J. Feng at University of British Columbia in Vancouver (Canada), that I held since 2011 to study the dynamics of diphasic fluids.

There, I used to share my time between the Departments of Mathematics and of Chemical and Biological Engineering.


I completed my PhD in Materials Physics in December 2010 at the University of Grenoble (France), with a thesis on “Dynamics and rheology of a suspension of vesicles and red blood cells” under the supervision of Dr. Chaouqi Misbah.


My approach to complex fluids, particle suspensions and multiphase flows is mostly numerical. I enjoy collaborating with experimentalists in order to tackle fundamental problems and understand the origin of the observed behaviors.
