Biological cells are pervaded by a dense biopolymer network of fibrous proteins, collectively termed the cytoskeleton. The exact structures comprising this composite network are majorly important for the mechanical properties of the cells, which in turn support their physiological function. The cytoskeleton consists of three filamentous systems, actin filaments, microtubules and intermediate filaments (IFs) along ...

IC Distinguished Lecture With machine learning technology we are now able to automate many tasks that humans learn to perform through experience rather than through step-by-step instruction. Without such a learning capability we are limited to automating tasks for which a step-by-step sequence of instructions is known. In this talk we shall ask whether it ...

IMT Distinguished Lecture Abstract: The mid-infrared and terahertz spectral range is key to many applications for sensing and imaging, as many molecules have their fundamental vibration modes in that frequency region. Using traditional multipass cells and single frequency quantum cascade lasers, detection of light molecules with sup-ppb sensitivity and isotopic selectivity has been achieved. There ...

Recent years have seen various new approaches to low-order modelling of turbulent fluid flows. These include the resolvent-based approach, Koopman/DMD modes and recurrent solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations. These approaches are all related. The resolvent framework, which has roots in control theory, will be explained in some detail. One lasting theory has proposed that the ...

Physico-chemical analytical methods are invaluable tools for materials characterization. A number of these methods have become indispensable to obtain key structural information on heterogeneous catalytic materials under operando conditions. However, spectroscopic experiments are typically performed at steady state under static reaction conditions thus in principle precluding our access to information on relevant species, e.g. intermediates. ...
