Ms Stanard Mebwe Pachong shall be presenting the public part of her Ph.D. defence at 09:00 on Wednesday, 26 April 2017. Venue: Seminar Room of the Merensky Building for Physics.
Congratulations to Jurgen Kriel on being awarded an MSc in Physiological Sciences under the expert supervision of Ben Loos.
We welcome interest in joining the post-graduate research programme in this group. Please peruse the pages on this site to see what kind of research on this site. For 2018 and beyond the efforts in the group will focus on the following issues: Active matter (in particular further exploration of motility assays, active gels, etc.)… Read More »
Somiéalo Azote joined the group in September 2015 to pursue a PhD, working on mechanical properties of collections of cells. She graduated in December 2018. Somiéalo worked on the role of cytoskeletal networks in the elastic response of cells. Eventually this will be coupled into a model for tissues. We are grateful for generous funding… Read More »
Sthembiso Gumede has been a member of the group for a number of years. Currently he is well into his research for PhD on tethered membranes and their stability. Previously, Sthembiso completed a MSc degree on polymer translocation, also in the group. We appreciate funding of his work from the National Institute for Theoretical Physics.
Janusz Meylahn, group member and MSc student, has successfully passed his MSc exam. We congratulate Janusz and wish him well in his next adventure!
2014 saw graduations of two PhD students Christian M Rohwer, with a study on entanglements in polymers J Mohau Mateyisi, with a study on diffusion in coupled single-file pores and an MSc student Sthembiso R Gumede, with a study of polymer translocation There is also an article on December 2014 PhDs in the Physics Department at Stellenbosch… Read More »
