Title:  On the Frozen and the Infused

Abstract:

In the language of experiments and scaling laws, I will discuss a few examples of my research in soft matter, broadly divided in two themes: the ‘Frozen’ and the ‘Infused’. In the first act, ‘Frozen’, I will describe the fascinating phenomenon of freezing of a bubble – how freezing enkindles a plethora of ice crystals to emerge and swirl around in an effect reminiscent of a snow globe.   In the second act, ‘Infused’, I will discuss infused solids: a curious class of materials with properties in between that of a liquid and a solid – a feature that makes them ideal for revisiting classical laws of droplet motility on solids.
