Complex Fluid Interfacial Phenomena

Our group conducts fundamental and applied research in colloid and interface science. The main theme underlying our research is the pervasive influence of complex fluid interfacial phenomena in nature and technology. The group maintains a long-standing interest in the structure and dynamics of surfactants, macromolecules, supramolecular assemblies and nanoparticles at interfaces and the technologies they impact.  A variety of concepts based on colloidal and interfacial phenomena are being developed for applied research topics ranging from self-dispersing aerosolized carriers for drug delivery in obstructed lungs to the impacts of engineered nanoparticles on bacterial communities.
