Research interests

My research focuses on understanding wetting/dewetting transitions on nanotextured surfaces in order to aid in the rational design of super-hydrophobic, anti-fouling, and water-harvesting devices. To this end, I employ a combination of molecular dynamics (MD) and a coarse-grained lattice model (CGLM) to characterize the free energetics and dewetting pathways of interfacial water.
