research overview

  • The overarching goal of Laboratory of Interface, Flow and Electrokientics (LIFE) is to uncover the full potential of interfacial science to address societally relevant problems of energy storage, environmental remediation, and rational formulation of pharmaceutical and food products. LIFE tackles these challenging problems using a range of theoretical, numerical and experimental techniques. The research at LIFE revolves around various kinds of interfaces: liquid-liquid, liquid-liquid-solid and liquid-solid. These phenomena occur at a broad range of length scales ranging from 1-10 nm to even 1 km. Some topics that have been explored include nanoemulsions for pharmaceutical and cosmetic applications, microscale flows and flow in porous media for oil recovery applications, and electrokinetic phenomena for energy storage and environmental applications.
