Our team works on applied fluid dynamics and interfacial science at both micro- and macro- scales for energy, health, and environmental applications, primarily using experiments and numerical simulations. Our current research activities focus on micro- and nano-fluidics, evaporation, complex fluids, soft matter, evaporation, wetting, and convective transport. We welcome scientists and industrial partners to contact us for collaboration.
