About the Anna Laboratory

 
 

We are experimental fluid dynamicists interested in soft materials and microfluidics.   We are affiliated with the Center for Complex Fluids Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University.


Soft materials include emulsions, polymer and surfactant solutions, and liquid crystals.  These materials are critical to the function of numerous engineering technologies that impact our lives, from consumer products and pharmaceuticals to optical devices and energy solutions. Common to all soft materials is the presence of an underlying structure, whether droplets, defects, or macromolecules.


Microfluidics has revolutionized our approach to synthesis and characterization of soft materials by enabling precise fabrication and control of flows at length scales that interact with the microstructure. We use these advantages to develop new fabrication and measurement methods that enable us to understand the dynamics of complex fluids.
