Welcome to Complex Fluids

Our research is focused on the application of computational methods and high-performance computing to problems in micro- and bio-fluidics that involve coupling between soft materials and hydrodynamics, fluid-structure interactions, multiphase flows, etc.


The goal is to design synthetic systems that can perform biomimetic functions. The studies will enable the development of active, microscale devices that could play a crucial role in a number of applications.

For example, by designing synthetic membranes with controllable pores, we could facilitate the development of novel systems for targeted delivery of drugs.polymeric microscale swimmers

Modeling polymeric microscale swimmers that propel themselves in microfluidic devices could help creating programmable micro-robots that can perform specific tasks in microfluidic systems.
