About Me

I am principally interested in the study of interfacial phenomena, particularly in biological systems and in size regimes where surface area effects begin to dominate the behavior of materials (i.e., colloids). As a classical example, the stability and rheology of colloidal particles in solution are largely determined by forces that are a result of their surface and bulk material properties. These fundamental interactions govern the stability of colloidal dispersions and are also relevant to far more complex systems like bacteria, eukaryotic cells, and viruses. In biological systems, fundamental interaction forces play a critical role in phenomena such as bacterial adhesion and internal cellular mechanics. Understanding how these forces contribute to the behavior of colloidal or biological systems is a continuing goal in biomedical engineering not only from a fundamental perspective, but also in the rational design of novel biomaterials and engineered systems. Additionally, I am interested in the application of engineered nanomaterials as a novel tool for investigating biological processes.
