Research Overview

We leverage our expertise in surface and interfacial science to conduct both fundamental and applied research. Our research is highly interdisciplinary and it addresses some of the key issues in the areas of anti-fouling, hemocompatibility, phase change heat transfer, icephobicity, sustainability, droplet fluid mechanics, membrane separations, 3D printing, etc. Checkout the Kota Research Group YouTube Channel.
