Collectives Effects and Soft Matter (EC2M)

EC2M (Effets Collectifs en Matière Molle), was created in October 2011. The leader is Olivier Dauchot.

The work of EC2M, team of the Gulliver laboratory, concerns the structural and / or dynamic organization of the soft matter. Our preferred systems of study are granular media, colloidal suspensions, emulsions, liquid crystal shells, polymer capsules ... and megakaryocytes.

Our research, of fundamental nature, can find many applications, for example in the production of blood platelets in microfluidic geometry, or in the characterization of the flow properties of industrial suspensions!
