Last week, UCLA mathematics postdocs Claudia Falcon and Hangjie Ji and PhD student Yonatan Dukler were featured in the YouTube episode, “Most People Don’t Know Wine Moves Like This” by the PBS Digital Studios channel, Physics Girl. With currently over 190,000 views and 13,000 likes, the video focuses on research from their recent paper, “A theory for undercompressive shocks in tears of wine,” published on ArXiv in September 2019.  The paper presents a new model for the climbing dynamics associated with the tears of wine problem for thin films in water-ethanol mixtures. 

Physics Girl is a YouTube channel created by Dianna Cowern that delves into the physical sciences with experiments, demonstrations, and new discoveries.
