Research at the Computational Micro and Nanofluidics Laboratory focuses on the flow, heatand mass transfer in micro and nano channels. The primary objective is todevelope simple models for complex flows using a minimum of empiricism. Theapplications include

  • Lab-on-a-chip: biofluidic filters and separators;electroosmotic pumps; integrated microfluidic vents
  • Drug delivery systems providing controlled release
  • Rapid biomolecular analysis
  • Size-based protection of biosensors
  • Transport modeling of bio-artificial kidney
  • DNA biosensor
  • Cancer cell magnetic targeting
  • Asymmetric hydrated ion nano-separator for direct water desalination
  • First-principles modeling of lithium-ion and other types of batteries
