Frugal Science – Lecture by Dr. Manu Prakash
Fermilab, Batavia IL
With our planet literally teeming with problems, it’s time to take cost constraints into serious consideration. As physicists and engineers, we know how to make stuff. We use these skills (and field work) to design solutions for extremely resource constrained settings, especially in the field of global health. Our work in this area extends from field diagnostics to hands-on science education. Dr. Prakash leads a curiosity driven research group working in the field of physical biology. Their approach brings together experimental and theoretical techniques from soft-condensed matter physics, fluid dynamics, theory of computation and unconventional micro and nano-fabrication to open problems in biology: from organismal to cellular and molecular scale.
