Our team works on both fundamental and 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, complex fluids, wetting, convection, porous media flow, and carbon capture utilization and storage.
