CHBE alumnus Dr. Jun Chung, former advisor Dr. Manoj Chaudhury, publish papers in Nature Physics

CHBE alumnus Dr. Jun Chung (PhD, 2006) recently co-authored a paper entitled "On the growth and form of cortical convolutions" in the February 1, 2016 issue of the journal Nature Physics with co-authors Tuomas Tallinen, François Rousseau, Nadine Girard, Julien Lefèvre and L. Mahadevan.

Dr. Chung received his PhD in Chemical Engineering at Lehigh in 2006 under the supervision of Professor Manoj Chaudhury, the Franklin Howes Jr. Distinguished Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. Currently, Dr. Chung is a research associate at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and is also affiliated with the Harvard Wyss Institute. His research interests are in the field of soft and living matter, focusing on biomechanics of morphogenesis, soft matter physics, and bio-inspired materials engineering.

Coincidentally, in the same issue of Nature Physics, Dr. Manoj Chaudhury published a paper entitled "Directional transport of high-temperature Janus droplets mediated by structural topography" with co-authors Jing Li, Youmin Hou, Yahua Liu, Chonglei Hao, Minfei Li, Shuhuai Yao & Zuankai Wang from the City University of Hong Kong and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.
