Laboratory of Interfacial Transport

We are a curiosity-driven research group where our research is focused on gaining a deeper understanding of the nature, behavior, and effects of features existing at the limits of continuum field theory. Common examples of these features, which are often represented as discontinuities, are material or phase interface, vortex sheet, shock front, combustion front, and gravity wave, to name a few.

These problems are intriguing and challenging at the same time as it is accompanied by rapid changes in scales, multi-physics, geometrical complexities, and fascinating chemical phenomena. We use and develop theoretical and computational tools to study them.

We are actively looking for highly motivated graduate and undergraduate students.
