Research Interests

My research focuses on the interdisciplinary studies of biologically-inspired interfacial thermofluidics and its applications in the field of surface design for new functions and a sustainable future. My research interests include fundamental studies of hydrodynamic and thermal interactions of droplets, bubbles, and particles with surfaces, with the goal of engineering multiple length scale functional surfaces. In particular, I am interested in water collection and treatment as well as relevant energy and environmental research.
