Our work is currently focused on proposing fundamental theoretical models, simulation methods, and experimental techniques to study the spatiotemporal behavior of self-propelled colloidal particles, with novel applications in sensors, nanotechnology, lab-on-a-chip systems, and drug/cargo delivery. In broader terms, our group addresses research and educational topics in fluid mechanics, transport processes, Brownian/Stokesian dynamics, colloidal sciences, and the mechanics of swimming of microorganisms and synthetic devices.
