Many microorganisms swim, their motion biased by environmental stimuli (e.g. chemical gradients, light or fluid flow). As a result, fluids containing these tiny microswimmers behave peculiarly compared to passive colloidal suspensions. I will introduce the exciting new biophysics of these active fluids, drawing from my research on swimming bacteria and algae, currently inspired by problems in microbial ecology and biotechnology.

All welcome. Refreshments provided.
