Multiphase flow takes place in a wide spectrum of engineering applications such as food production, power generation, water treatment, oil production, water desalination, refrigeration and air conditioning, as well as in carbon capture and sequestration systems. My lab aims at providing reliable solutions for our many industrial problems and new technologies that can make these engineering systems more efficient and sustainable.

The problems I have worked on in animal science have direct implications for genetic selection, food quality (e.g. cow milk), and animal health. On the other hand, my work in understanding the structure and driving mechanisms of ecological (e.g. plant-pollinator) networks have indirect implications for ecosystem conservation, management, and restoration.
