The multiscale multiphysics group is working on engineering problems of different length scales. The group is focused on fundamental and applied research on interfaces and surfaces with application in energy and lab-on-a-chip. The area of research includes (not limited to) microfluidics, wettability engineering, multiphase flow, single and multiphase heat transfer, etc.
