Welcome to my personal website

Why do some milk droplets rest on the surface of coffee before falling into it? How long does the foam on the surface last? The physics and chemistry of the surfaces that separate different phases of matter, as well as the properties of the adjacent media, govern these and many other phenomena in daily life, science, and industry. My lab website describes my research into understanding and using such phenomena where behaviour along and near interfaces drives motion of fluids and particles.
