The goal of our research is to explore the basic science of multiphase transport phenomena involving fluid-particle interactions (i.e., vapor bubbles, solid particles or biological cells in fluid media) with multiphysical and multiscale effects.  

The thrust is to come up with new ideas to control and optimize the transport processes with external fields, e.g., thermal, electrical and/or magnetic fields.  

Possible engineering applications include micro/nano-enabled thermal management, biological and biomedical engineering, and nanomanufacturing using self-assembly.
