Greg Huber works on problems in biological physics, with an emphasis on the interplay of statistical mechanics, biomechanics, and fluid dynamics. He is an Associate Professor in the Department of Cell Biology at the University of Connecticut Health Center, with joint appointments in the Department of Mathematics and the Department of Physics at the University of Connecticut, Storrs. He received his Ph.D. from Boston University under the supervision of H. Eugene Stanley, working on the statistical physics of order-disorder transitions and turbulence, and his B.S. from MIT, where he worked with Alan Guth on inflation. A post-doctoral appointment at the James Franck Institute of the University of Chicago led him to be one of the first theorists to consider the coffee-ring effect. (Photograph courtesy of George M.

Rush hour in a drop of coffee

The dramatic speed-up of fluid flow in a drying drop of a colloidal suspension controls the pattern of order and disorder in the particle stain that is left behind. Read More »
