My research is in complex fluids, with an emphasis on using advanced high-speed video techniques to extract quantitative measurements from complicated phenomena. My group strives to answer fundamental scientific questions about a variety of systems where the transport behavior is paramount. Recent topics include: electrocoalescence of charged droplets, shear-induced deformation of red blood cells, and electrically-induced aggregation of food colloids.
