About Us

unnamedWe are an interdisciplinary experimental group that is developing small scale materials and devices for biological applications. ongoing research program can be broadly categorized into three core subject areas: transport phenomena, bioinspired systems design and fabrication, and single molecule biophysics. Although each core program consists of a distinct project, we would like to emphasize their synergistic nature - advances in one core are expected to drive the development of the...

  • Our research, "Bacterial Flagella in a Viscous Shear Flow", presented by the APS Division of Fluid Dynamics is now available in the Gallery of Fluid Motion. (December 2016)


  • Jamel Ali successfully defended his PhD dissertation: Engineered Bacterial Flagella for Micro- and Nanoscale Actuation and Sensing. Dr. Ali will seek for a faculty position. Bon Voyage! (December 2016)


  • New book, Nanofluidics 2nd Edition, is now published, in which specific applications with a focus on bioanalysis are given with case studies. The end of each chapter now also features a methodology section to explain experimental protocols and "tips and tricks". (November 2016)
