graduate students working hard


Our laboratory has extensive experience in microfludics research with particular focus on developing microfluidic platforms for pumping, valving, particle sorting, and dispensing mechanisms as well as fundamental research in numerical modeling of such systems. An active research area that has resulted in a number of publications is in developing new magneto-hydrodynamic (MHD) micropump designs with bubble-isolating micro-channels and high-efficiency stacked centrifugal micropumps.
