Vivian Feig

Faculty Candidate Seminar: Vivian Feig, Feb. 28

Dec. 2, 2022

Vivian Feig, PhD, is a Schmidt Science Fellow and postdoctoral researcher in the labs of Assistant Professor Giovanni Traverso and Professor Robert Langer at MIT and the Brigham and Women’s Hospital. In this talk, Feig will show how soft matter can enable bio-interfacing materials to circumvent the tradeoff between dynamism and functionality for two particularly difficult use cases: bio-electronics and load-bearing materials.

Improved understanding of transport in concentrated electrolyte solutions has important implications for energy storage, water purification, biological applications, and more. This understanding should ideally persist across length scales: we desire both continuum-level insight into macroscopic concentration and electric potential profiles as well as a molecular-level understanding of the mechanisms governing ion motion. However, the most ubiquitous theory to describe continuum-level electrolyte transport, the Stefan-Maxwell equations, yields transport coefficients which lack clear molecular-level interpretation and cannot be easily computed from molecular simulations.
