Welcome to FlowLab at UCR!
We are interested in the organization and transport of complex flowing materials, which we investigate using a combination of theory, computation and experiments. The motivation for the problems we seek comes from a variety of sources including microfluidics, colloidal transport, soft matter physics and climate science. Recently, we have been interested in the acoustic propulsion and sorting of suspensions, hydrodynamic interactions of colloids with interfaces and membranes, and the transport and jamming of sea ice.
We are always open to discussing new ideas and welcome new collaborations. Please feel free to contact us!
If you are an undergraduate or a graduate student and want to work with us, please email Prof. Rallabandi with your CV and a short description of your interests. Check the Openings page for more details!
