About Me

I received my PhD  (2012) in Chemical Engineering from Queen's University at Kingston (Canada) with a dissertation relating to the use of spatially non-uniform electric fields for colloidal assembly. After graduation, I worked as an NSERC industrial postdoctoral fellow at Greenfield Specialty Alcohols/The University of Western Ontario. In September 2014, I joined the Soft Matter, Fluidics and Interfaces (SFI) group at the University of Twente as a postdoctoral fellow working on problems related to transport at microscopic interfaces. After approximately a year-and-a-half at the UT, I was promoted to my current position as Assistant Professor in SFI. My research interests are related to ion-transport phenomena (electrokinetics), flows over superhydrophobic surfaces and the role of topology/heterogeneity in membrane separations, catalytic processes and electrochemical systems.

Research

My current research interests relate to the following main areas:

  • Ion-Transport Phenomena (electrokinetics)
  • Role of Heterogeneous/Geometrically Structured Interfaces on resulting performance in electric-driven processes (ex. electrodialysis/electrochemical conversions)
  • Flows over Superhydrophobic Surfaces
  • Numerical simulation of Transport Phenomena

In order to investigate these topics, typically a combination of experiments, theoretical analysis and numerical simulations are used. This research usually involves experiments in micro to millifluidic scales, with the aim to provide more insight into processes by quantifying transport at these length-scales.
