    My research applies simulation techniques across multiple length and time scales to better understand the mechanical response of various materials. Current studies include atomic-scale simulations on dynamic wetting and spreading, capillary driven fluid flow in reactive flow systems, nanosuspension self-pinning phenomenon and direct computation of capillary force constitutive relations for nanosuspension.
