Assistant Professor


Research Areas research areas


research overview

  • The Gupta research group—known as the Laboratory of Interfaces, Flow and Electrokinetics (LIFE)—employs theoretical, numerical, and experimental methods to study transport phenomena in electrochemical, microfluidic, and biophysical systems. Their research aims to illuminate the underlying principles governing these systems, leading to advances in energy storage technologies, miniaturized lab-on-a-chip devices, and the development of next-generation artificial skin. Our work has been covered in popular press, including CNN, The Daily Mail, Newsweek, and many others.
