|Microfluidics and Multiphase Flow Laboratory|
|Department of Mechanical Engineering
in the Microfluidics and Multiphase Flow Laboratory is highly
interdisciplinary; incorporating aspects of additive manufacturing,
interfacial science, microfluidics, energy, and biotechnology. We are
using electrospray and inkjet technology to print solution-processed
nanomaterials with defined
structure over multiple length scales. These technologies plays an
role in manufacturing the next-generation of flexible electronics,
solar cells, smart bandages, and biosensors. We are building
microfluidic bio-instrumentation to produce highly-customizable
asymmetric vesicles with controllable membrane composition, size, and
luminal content. These synthetic vesicles support fundamental studies
on bacterial biofilms and membrane biology. Our energy research focuses
on the use of electrohydrodynamic atomization of energy dense fuels for
applications in clean and efficient combustion. Finally, our team is
part of a diverse group exploring the
fluid mechanics of the brain.
