Symmetry-reversals in twirly active matter

Sometimes, it takes a village to make a project happen! Following on a summer project with Triangle MRSEC REU student Gustavo Ramirez (visiting from Hunter College in New York City), graduate student Marcel Workamp came to visit for a month. Then, he brought some of his ideas from that visit back to the lab of Joshua Dijksman (U. Wageningen, Netherlands), where it became part of his PhD thesis.

You can read more about the project in press releases in English or Dutch, or in the full paper:
