MY RESEARCH

Our research activities revolve around transport phenomena and biological soft matter physics. In particular, we are interested in the dynamics of biological/non-biological colloids at out-of-equilibrium conditions, which has implications in the locomotion of microbes. We also study the dynamics of lipid vesicles with applications to targeted drug delivery and release.

C-MĀIKI SYNERGY

We are interested in how dissolved chemicals influence the individual and collective motion of bacteria. With the help of other members of C-MAIKI, I look forward to elucidate how bacteria form colonies and biofilms in various natural settings.

IMPACT TO HAWAII

Related to the colloid dynamics, we study an energy-efficient method for separating bacteria and viruses from wastewater, which is important in water-scarce regions such as Hawaii.
