Congratulations Bijoy

On Friday, February 12, Bijoy Bera successfully defended his PhD thesis entitled “Ion and Surfactant Induced Wetting Transition”. The project was a great success and delivered new insights into the mechanisms how cations of variable valency affect the relative wettability of water and oil on mineral surfaces. The findings provided a microscopic explanation of empirical findings by oil companies in their macroscopic core flooding experiments.

We wish Bijoy all the best for his future career, which has already started at the University of Amsterdam.
