I am currently doing research for my PHD at the University of Ottawa. I am visiting Dr. Christian Holm's group for 2009. My research consists of modeling electro-osmotic flow (EOF) using molecular dynamics simulations. EOF plays a large role in the emerging field of microfluidics as it occurs in almost every microfluidic device. My research focuses on understanding how polymer coatings can be used to control the EOF, a practice which is widespread experimentally.
