Research Interests

We study microscale transport phenomena of structured fluids and interfaces. Examples include emulsification and foaming, processing flows for advanced materials, biomedical flows and drug delivery. Our research combines multiple experimental techniques to provide precise, direct, dynamic measurements on the micro- and nano-scale, to derive new insights in physico-chemical mechanisms and continuum-scale mechanics of multiphase soft matter systems.
