Research interests: Fundamental problems in fluid motions dominated by viscosity, low Reynolds number flows. Applying a combination of theory, computer simulation and modeling, and experiments, with applications to problems involving effects of surface tension, buoyancy, fluid rotation, and surfactants, and the flow of lipids and motions of suspended particles.
