Constitutive modelling of photodegradable gels 

Rheological modelling of wormlike micellar solutions

PhD openings

Monash University offers PhD scholarships to high-achieving students twice a year. This is a competitive scheme, mostly based on academic excellence and the ranking of institutions.

The next round for domestic students (Australian citizens and PRs) closes on October 31st. The next round for International students closes on March 31st.

Students interested in applying to one of these rounds to do a PhD in the group should contact me at least one month before the deadline.
