Since the end of 2013 he is professor for soft microsystems at the university Bordeaux (F) at the CRPP (Centre de Recherche Paul Pascal).

Uroš Tkalec

Jean-Christophe Baret

worked with us as a postdoc in the field of nematic liquid crystals and microfluidics. In 2012 he accepted an Assistant Professorship at the faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, department of Physics of the University of Maribor (SLO) and the Jožef Stefan Institute in Slovenia.
