  • Elasticity and Glocality: Initiation of Embryonic Inversion in Volvox 

    Haas, Pierre; Goldstien, Raymond E (Royal Society PublishingJournal of the Royal Society Interface, 2015-10-21)
    Elastic objects across a wide range of scales deform under local changes of their intrinsic properties, yet the shapes are glocal, set by a complicated balance between local properties and global geometric constraints. ...

  • Theory of Shape-Shifting Droplets 

    Haas, Pierre; Goldstein, Raymond Ethan; Smoukov, Stoyan Kostadinov; Cholakova, D; Denkov, N (American Physical SocietyPhysical Review Letters, 2017-02-24)
    Recent studies of cooled oil emulsion droplets uncovered transformations into a host of flattened shapes with straight edges and sharp corners, driven by a partial phase transition of the bulk liquid phase. Here, we explore ...
