Principal Investigator. Donald R. Dixon '69 and Elizabeth W. Dixon Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.

Research Interests

Fluid mechanics and soft condensed matter physics, widely applied to problems in engineering, physics, chemistry, and biology. Current research interests include flow in porous media, the influence of flow on bacteria and biofilms, the influence of surfactants on the dissolution of CO2 bubbles in water, and problems coupling flow and elasticity of soft substrates, including laboratory models of hydraulic fracture.
