Research Areas


Topics include additive manufacturing, thin film manufacturing, fiber spinning, and spray drying.

Interfacial Phenomena

Learn more about our research on self-assembly, foams, spreading, and interfacial transport.

Rheology & Fluid Mechanics

Review our research on extensional rheology, shear rheology, polymer dynamics, and spreading dynamics.
