Areas of Interest

Fluid mechanics and separation processes, especially the way in which mathematics may be applied to improve our understanding of physical processes that occur in these areas.

Current research projects include the study of flow-induced microstructure in concentrated suspensions, shear-induced migration and segregation in bidisperse suspensions, dispersion in chip-based micro-laboratories, and zetafiltration, a novel electrophoretic separation process.
