Our research group uses fundamental theoretical and experimental approaches to study transport processes involving small particles in polymer solutions and gels. This work has applications in bioseparation techniques, most of which make use of the sieving effect of hydrogels to separate biological macromolecules, and also in numerous suspension-processing operations. Our overall effort has significant overlap with the fields of colloid science, fluid mechanics and biochemical engineering.
