The Droplet Lab

We are a highly interdisciplinary group working on many aspects of droplet physics: how droplets are formed, how they move, and how they interact with surfaces.

An understanding of droplet physics has many important applications, such as the ability to make better raincoat and anti-fouling coatings to repel oil and blood. More recently, there is a growing recognition that disease transmissions are dictated by how respiratory droplets move in air.

Generation and spread of droplets in normal speech

More generally, we are interested in various wetting and adhesion phenomena. For more information, please go to


We have a lot of expertise in high-speed photography, atomic force microscopy, and reflection interference contrast microscopy techniques.
