Whaleboats in the Forest: Subaltern Technologies of Transportation on Congo’s Inland Waterways KU Leuven
Congo’s wooden baleinières (Fr. whaleboats) are locally developed and crafted socio-technical assemblages that account for up to 50% of all transportation of goods and people on the waterways of the Congo Basin. Despite the vital role of these subaltern technologies of transportation for the livelihoods of millions, the socio-technical complexities responsible for their success have never been studied. Rooted in older boat building traditions ...
Micro/nano-electromechanical system (M/NEMS) resonant mass sensors have attracted utmost interest over the past two decades. This is due to their wide range of applications, especially in biochemistry, for instance weighing single molecules, nanoparticles, and even monitoring the growth of living cells. However, their performance is significantly decreased when operated at ambient air and measurements take a considerable time. Therefore, ...

New method to mechano-spectroscopically investigate the transient evolution of a complex-fluid's microstructure subjected to a non-linear deformation or flow KU Leuven
The purpose of this project is to demonstrate a proof-of-concept for a novel and universal method to mechano-spectroscopically investigate transient evolution of a complex-fluid's microstructure when subjected to a non-linear deformation or flow. Dr Victor Boudara will pursue this goal at the Department of Chemical Engineering of KU Leuven, under the supervision of Prof Christian Clasen. The goals of the project will be achieved by combining ...
