Report introduction


The report will focus on the new frontier   in soft matter physics -- collective assembly and dynamics of active building   blocks, whose properties we can design and regulate experimentally. We   introduce the mechanism of energy conversion and communication for individual   constituents in both synthetic and biological materials, so the assembly   structures and dynamics are distinctly different from and much more exciting   than traditional equilibrium assembly. Advances in understanding of such   active systems may lead to understanding of complex physical behavior in   living cells and designing of biomimetic micro-robotics.


About the speaker:

Jie Zhang graduated from the Department of Chemistry of the University   of Science and Technology in 2011 and won the Moruo Guo Scholarship. He went   to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for a PhD degree in the   Department of Materials, under the tutelage of Steve Granick, an academician   of the National Academy of Sciences. After graduating from his Ph.D., he   joined Zvonimir Dogic's laboratory, a professor in the Department of Physics   at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and expanded his research   direction to the study of the physical properties of active living materials.   The research content involves physics, chemistry, engineering and other   disciplines, and has been widely recognized by peers in related fields at   many international conferences (including the annual meeting of the American   Physical Society, the Gordon Research Conference, the American Chemical   Colloid and Surface Chemistry Conference, etc.)
