a. Charged surfaces, EDL theory and electrokinetics

In this topic, we explore the behavior of nanoscale charged surfaces and the transport and liquids and ions (through electrokinetics) triggered by the interactions of these surfaces with liquids and ions. The applications of the topic range from better exploiting nanoscale physics for augmented nanoscale transport to developing nanoscale devices for biomedical and chemical applications.

c. Air-Water Interface

In this topic, we study the ion behavior at air-water interface. The findings have applications in better understanding a large number of phenomena dictated by ion adsorption at the air-water interface (formation of acid rain, formation of polluted marine boundary layers, etc.)
