Welcome to Our Lab Website

We are a multi-disciplinary lab interested in fluid mechanics, transport phenomena, and hydrodynamics of soft ‎and active matter. In particular, we exploit the tools of applied mathematics ‎(e.g. reduced-order models and numerical techniques)‎ and simple experiments to solve impactful problems where the mutual coupling of moving or deformable ‎objects and their surrounding fluid plays an important role in the dynamics of the system. These ‎problems often involve ‎coupled physical phenomena taking place at a wide range of length and time scales and are of paramount importance in many engineering, biological, and biomedical contexts. Our lab is equipped with high-end parallel computing facilities and we always seek talented and motivated minds to join our team. We also very much enjoy collaborating with other experimental and theoretical groups.‎ For more information, please visit our research and publications pages.
