I am interested in problems with complex rheology, multiple phases and multiple length scales -
e.g. liquid-liquid dispersions and particle-liquid flows.
Our group does computer simulation and experiments in a number of important polymer processing operations, including: mixing (twin-screw extruders, static mixers, impingement mixing), die design, reactive processing, injection molding, liquid coating and rheology.
We use computational fluid dynamics, finite element and finite volume methods, for problems with free and moving boundaries, as well as complex interfaces.
Most of the problems I work on are materials processing related, usually with an industry sponsor.
