Rheology of Suspensions

One focus is on the characterization of animal blood. In recent years we have been able to describe a number of animal species, the results are summarized in two book chapters. Popular species in our research are camelids, horses and rodents, but also species whose blood is used for forensic studies. A completely new approach in our research is to measure the behavior of human blood on different biological surfaces. 

Rheology of Gels

Here, we are interested in the non-linear behavior of blood clots and other fibrous gels that are exposed to large shear stress/strain amplitudes. Together with an industrial partner, we have developed a LAOStress protocol for clot phenotyping. We also use animal blood, but we work predominantly with patient blood samples and with pure fibrin fiber networks.
