Gravity or a gentle movement of the leaf can propel the droplets.” Aritra Ghosh, a Ph.D. student of Professor Constantine Megaridis, spoke to the Times of India about how a curiosity from his childhood lead to his joining Megaridis’ team in developing technology that can potentially revolutionize industries from medical diagnostics to power supply.
