Our group 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, enhanced oil recovery, and carbon capture utilization and storage.
Postdoc & MSc (or research assistant) positions are available. These positions are available in the fields of experimental microfluidics/fluid mechanics, computational fluid dynamics, and/or machine learning. See the webpage under the tab [Resources] for details.
