Our group specializes in mathematical modeling of transport phenomena, especially in electrochemical systems and micro/nanofluidic devices. We develop new models for complex nonlinear phenomena and employ both analytical approximations and computational methods to solve the models and make predictions to be compared with experimental data. In some cases, we collaborate with experimental groups at MIT and around the world, but we also have our own laboratory, focusing on electrochemical systems for environmental and energy applications.
Current research topics relate to energy (Li-ion batteries, electrochemical capacitors, fuel cells), water treatment ("shock electrodialysis", capacitive desalination, separations), and microfluidics (nonlinear electrokinetics, hydrodynamic slip, electrophoresis, nanofluidics) as well as fundamental aspects of applied mathematics, continuum mechanics, and statistical physics.
Announcement: The popular graduate class, Analysis of Transport Phenomena 10.50 is now free for all to learn! MITx on EdX proudly announces the launch of 10.50x, which takes you on a unique mathemathetical journey though the world of engineering, unlike any other online course available today. Check out an exciting and brief course overview on Youtube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73Lfq55KCDQ
