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 membrane separations, phase change heat transfer, icephobicity, droplet fluid mechanics, microrobots, hemocompatibility and microfluidic sensors.
