I am currently working on poroelasticity and flows in deformable media with John Wettlaufer. I received my PhD on Marangoni driven contact line instabilities under Bob Behringer at Duke. My broader interests include non-equilibrium statistical mechanics in particular applications of fluctuation dissipation theorem, flow instabilities and shear thickening ( Brown Lab @ Mechanical Engineering) and physics of glass transition. In addition to standard optical imaging techniques I am also experienced in quantum dot synthesis, dielectric spectroscopy and atomic force microscopy.
