Dr. Christopher Pipe visited BICTAM

Invited by State Key Laboratory of Nonlinear Mechanics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Dr. Christopher Pipe will engage in research on non-Newtonian property of micro-scale complex fluids as research fellow in December 2007. He also became the first scholar to visit BICTAM after the secretariat had been established. And he will stay in the office of secretariat as the visiting scientist for one year.

Dr. Christopher Pipe won the “CAS Research Fellowship for International Young Researchers”.
