Borhan Research Lab

The Borhan Research Lab focuses on transport phenomena, capillary and wetting phenomena, interfacial and multiphase flows, and complex fluids.

Current research focuses in the lab include:

  • Ozone transport and uptake in the respiratory tract
  • Wetting behavior of physically-patterned solid surfaces
  • High-pressure sillane pyrolysis and deposition in confined domains
  • Drug release from polymeric microcapsules
  • Self-propulsion of electrocatalytic nanomotors
