Research Summary

My current research activities are focused in three distinct areas: artificial organs, bioseparations, and membrane processes. In each of these areas, our goal is to develop a more fundamental understanding of the factors governing the behavior of these processes, including the complex interactions between the biological molecules/cells and the synthetic materials used in these devices. Descriptions of several ongoing research areas are described on my research page.
