Visualization, coarsening, and flow dynamics of focal conic domains in simulated smectic-A liquid crystals
Our shear thickening paper that settles a decades-long debate in suspension rheology has been selected as PRL Editor's Suggestion.

Along with investigators from the Boyce Thompson Institute for Plant Research, we show how plants manage to grow in Ithaca's rocky soil!
We introduced an experiment to solve the mystry of how Oobleck works.
