We are experimental fluid dynamicists interested in microfluidics, interfacial fluid mechanics, and surfactant transport. We develop innovative, microscale experimental methods to probe and control liquid-fluid interfaces, using scaling analysis, theory, and numerics as tools to complement our experiments. By developing strategies to separate timescales for relevant processes, we have been able to advance the fundamental engineering science of multiphase flows.
Our group and our work is interdisciplinary and collaborative. We enjoy several strong collaborations with other academic research groups around campus and elsewhere, including strong connections with industry.
