Dynamic variations in tree hydraulic properties and its implications for water transport dynamics Ghent University
THe objective of this project is to unravel the mechanisms and eco(physio)logical consequences of dynamic variations in tree hydraulic properties (hydraulic capacitance and conductance) on whole tree water transport dynamics in coniferous, diffuse porous and ring porous trees. Experimental evidence will be collected over daily and seasonal cycles and will be translated into a mechanistic water flow and storage model.

Non-radiative transitions in luminescent materials: from energy surfaces to dynamics Ghent University
Luminescent materials or phosphors are able to emit light as result of a certain stimulus. This can be the absorption of light itself, mechanical stress or temperature. Due to their particular functional behavior, these materials are found in numerous applications such as lighting, displays, medical imagingU+2026 Phosphors are composed of an insulating crystal which is deliberately doped by
metal impurities, activating the luminescent ...
Metatranscriptomic insights into the spatiotemporal dynamics of microeukaryotic plankton in the Southern North Sea Ghent University
This research employs long and short read metatranscriptomics to unveil spatiotemporal dynamics of microeukaryotic plankton in the Southern North Sea. Through the high throughput analysis of mRNA, we comprehensively characterize the planktonic ecosystem by monitoring seasonal and diurnal cycles. The resulting omics data is explored to answer key questions and contribute to methodological advances in plankton ecology and oceanography.
Exploring evolution dynamics in multidrug resistant Candida species: a focus on fitness-resistance associations and collateral sensitivity KU Leuven
Federal Dynamics in Multilevel Governance. University of Antwerp
Interest in using CLT for tall timber structures has increased due to the positive environmental impact of wood. While spruce is commonly used, other species like poplar have been overlooked. This project examines poplar's moisture dynamics and fungal susceptibility in CLT to assess its potential as a substitute and provide guidance for eco-friendly building projects.
Groundbreaking models for spectroscopy and charge transport in molecular dynamics simulations Ghent University
Molecular dynamics is an exceptional simulation tool that connects fundamental physics with more applied research. It is the workhorse in our collaborations with experimental researchers to enrich their findings with computational predictions and insights. Such simulations rely on an interatomic force model, which is always a trade-off between computational efficiency, accuracy, and the ability to describe all relevant physics. Recently, we ...
