- Flow in porous media
- Hydrodynamics of drops
- Colloidal interactions
- Thin film drainage
My interests lie in the modelling of systems arising in chemistry or chemical engineering, typically at the micron scale or smaller (nano-scale).
Over recent years, I have drifted from statistical mechanical treatments of the electrical double layer and Monte Carlo simulations of polyelectrolytes towards continuum modelling of phenomena such as the electroacoustics of non-dilute suspensions, electrochromatography, droplet breakup in the production of photographic dispersions, the performance of electrochemical supercapacitors, the formation of gold nanorods and drop-drop interactions in the Atomic Force Microscope.
