Research activity per year

Personal profile


My research area is microfluidics, focusing on manipulation of liquids/droplets at small scale for different applications such as improving heat transfers.

Research interests

My present research focuses on thermofluids related studies, particularly on smaller scale platforms as such the use of surface acoustic waves (SAWs) for microfluidics actuation, and the cooling of high temperature surfaces. On the work related to the SAW-microfluidics, my recent focus is on the enhancement of atomization (nebulization) and the nanoparticle filtration via graphene film with SAWs.
