Research in the Microfluidics and Multiphase Flow Laboratory is highly interdisciplinary; incorporating aspects of multiphase flows, interfacial science, microfluidics, and biotechnology. We are using y technology and continuous ink jetting to direct write (i.e. "print") solution-processed nanomaterials with defined structure over multiple scales. These technologies plays an important role in manufacturing the next-generation of flexible nanoelectronics, solar cells, smart bandages, and biosensors. As part of this work, we are exploring fluid-solid interactions using high velocity continuous droplet streams. We are developing microfluidic bio-instrumentation to produce highly-customizable emulsions with controllable interfacial properties, morphology, and internal contents. These emulsions serve as templates to build synthetic vesicles to support fundamental studies on bacterial biofilms and membrane biology. Finally, our team is part of a diverse group exploring the fluid mechanics of the brain.
