This week I have been supervising a group of students to address a challenge brought up by the company Feltest. The 10th edition of the Lorentz Center event Physics with Industry is a great initiative to learn about real-life problems. In our case, we had to visit a paper mill!
First paper comparing jet injection with tattooing techniques is online!
With the title High-speed imaging of solid needle and liquid micro-jet injections, it has been selected by the Editor of the Journal of Applied Physics as a Featured article. we found that microjet injections are superior to solid injections in terms of energy and volumetric delivery efficiencies per injection for three different liquids. In fact, we could […]
Invited talk at EmTech Europe
On October 2nd, I had the privilege to give an invited talk at EmTech Europe 2018. In a panel discussion on Rewriting Life: Reengineering Our Bodies, I presented ongoing work of my group at the University of Twente, on needle-free injections. The title of my talk was: Why do we still use needles for medical treatments?

Today I had the great privilege to give an invited keynote presentation and open the Workshop on Cavitation Exploitation organized by Matevž Dular In the framework of his ERC Consolidator grant, a selected group of specialists converged in Ljubljana, Slovenia, to talk about … bubbles.
A good read from a great colleague
Guerrilla Science: Survival Strategies of a Cuban Physicist by Ernesto Altshuler My rating: 5 of 5 stars This book is a beautiful story about science, humor and in some instances, sadness. The author uses several anecdotes in his story that at the same time teaches us something about his top-notch scientific research. For most people, […]
A new audience, new challenges!
This week I had the chance to give a talk at the event organized by Health Valley: https://lnkd.in/ebEiCvB. I shared my vision on how the Operation Room of the Future can benefit from our needle-free injection technology.
Visiting Warsaw to kickstart collaboration
This week I will be visiting my colleague, Prof. Colmenares’s group Catalysis for Sustainable Energy Production and Environmental Protection, from the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences. I will be giving two lectures supported by the National Science Centre (NCN) in Poland within research project Sonata Bis Nr. 2015/18/E/ST5/00306. This project is aimed […]
Getting “reproducibility” in the bag.
We can now say that “Reproducibility is in the bag”. Together with my collaborators, we came up with a suggestive title for our latest accepted paper in Ultrasonics Sonochemistry: Is reproducibility inside the bag? It is a new collaboration with colleagues from India, Finland, and the visit of an Erasmus-Portuguese student.
InkBeams in Radio and UTNieuws
Lea Milovich, a co-founder of InkBeams is interviewed by 1Twente (you can listen the interview in Dutch here). Also the UTNieuws has covered the event in which we won the Grand Prize (link).
Cavitation in Greece
Just gave a presentation at 4th Cavitation Workshop, organized by the International institute for Cavitation Research (IICR) It was interesting to meet new and old colleagues.
