  • Profile

  • Education

    Georgia Institute of Technology, BS,1989  

    California Institute of Technology, MS, 1991  

    California Institute of Technology, PhD, 1996

  • Courses Taught

    Suspension mechanics, colloidal suspensions, fluid mechanics and multiphase flow, rheology.

  • Research Interests

    These are in the properties and dynamics of flowing mixtures, with goal of developing a dynamic materials science. A major focus has been to carry scientific understanding of nonequilibrium microstructure and rheology in sheared suspensions to engineering applications through flow modeling.
