Now on the engineering page is a story from Andrej Košmrlj’s group about a new simulation method for engineering complex liquid mixtures with multiple phases — aka fancy lava lamps.

The work began as the junior paper of Milena Chakraverti-Wuerthwein, a physics concentrator from Princeton’s Class of 2020.
