Fascinating rheological properties like shear thickening/thinning and anisotropic viscosity arise from underlying structure in complex fluids. We develop and use techniques to simultaneously analyze emergent, large-scale properties and image particle-level positions and stresses in such suspensions.
Visualization, coarsening, and flow dynamics of focal conic domains in simulated smectic-A liquid crystals
Our shear thickening paper that settles a decades-long debate in suspension rheology has been selected as PRL Editor's Suggestion.
We introduced an experiment to solve the mystry of how Oobleck works.
