Our research

Thermal-Fluid Interfacial Engineering group is focused on understanding fundamentals of liquid-liquid and liquid-solid interactions in the micro/nanoscale for enhancing efficiency and reliability in power generation/consumption, water purification/separation, oil & gas production/processing, and transportation industries. Our group design surfaces and interfaces and study their interaction with single and multiphase systems. For a complete list of our publications, please visit our Google Scholar profile.
