Research Objectives and Approaches

My research is carried out primarily in the EPIC center; specifically, fabricating micro- and nano-sized pumps using electron beam lithography. These pumps are controlled by capillary forces to improve mixing control for channels in nanofluidic valves. I also co-op with NASA JSC periodically and am heavily involved with the microgravity team on campus.
