Moazen to lead Human Science Frontier Program project to study osteoderms
"We do not know what drives the extraordinary diversity of osteoderms in lizards, how it is controlled, or how it originated."Read more
Dr Manish K Tiwari is a Lecturer in the Mechanical Engineering Department of the University College London. He received his PhD from the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). After graduating, he first did his postdoctoral research in the Laboratory of Thermodynamics in Emerging Technologies at ETH Zurich. After two years as a postdoc, he became a Group Leader in the same Laboratory and stayed on at ETH Zurich for two more years.
Dr Tiwari’s research focuses on physics of small scale transport phenomena with an emphasis on developing energy efficient technologies. He has published papers in high quality journals such as Nature Communications, PNAS, Nano Letters etc. Some of these papers were also selected for unsolicited highlights in journals such as Nature and Nature Physics.
Dr Tiwari has given invited presentations and organized sessions in several international conferences in the area of thermal-fluid sciences. He is an European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant Awardee and a member of EPSRC Early Career Forum in Manufacturing Research. He was part of the ETH Zurich representation to the prestigious Global Young Scientist Summit (GYSS) in Singapore in 2013.
He also received the Dean’s Scholar award during his doctoral research at UIC, which is the most prestigious of the UIC doctoral fellowships, and a gold medal for his masters studies at Jadavpur University in India.
Scientists have designed a virtual modelling technique which can create highly detailed 3D models of individual cancerous tumours and simulate the delivery of drugs in order to predict effectiveness.Read more
