Project description

Multiphase flows (specifically, flows involving two or more immiscible phases) are encountered in  many life science applications including capillary‐driven flows and droplet microfluidics. Also,  understanding the initial filling behavior of a liquid into a microfluidic network is of interest since any  remaining air bubble can interfere with the operation of the microfluidic system. Current techniques  such as computational fluidic dynamics simulations using the volume‐of‐fluid or level‐set methods  carry a very high computational cost limiting their usage in industrial applications. The focus of this  post‐doc position is to develop an easy to use modeling framework based on a surface energy  minimization approach. Experimental validation of the tool and its application to various multiphase  flow phenomena in lab‐on‐a‐chip systems will also be explored under this position.
