Dynamics of complex fluids; Non-Newtonian fluid dynamics; non-isothermal flow; hydrodynamics stability; optical measurement techniques; microfluidics; laminar and turbulent drag redution; rheology and polymer processing
I am actively involved in research in a number of different areas including: the dynamics of complex fluids; laminar and turbulent drag reduction; the development and utilization of superhydrophobic surfaces; shear and extensional rheology of a number of different complex fluids; non-Newtonian fluid dynamics; microfluidics; nanotechnology; non-isothermal flows; hydrodynamic stability; and polymer processing. Below you will find a number of short examples of the active research in my group along with links to the corresponding publications and graduate students responsible for the work.
