Current Research

I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Michigan, Chemical Engineering Faculty, working with Prof. Ronald Larson on a variety of topics, including stress-induced polymer migration in confined geometries such as eccentric cylinders and rheology and dynamics behavior of colloidal systems in the presence of associative polymers. We use Multi-scale Simulation Methods to study hierarchical behavior of macromolecular systems.

Before joining Professor Ronald Larson's Research Group, I worked with Prof. Billy Todd at Swinburne University of Technology, and Prof. Peter Daivis at RMIT University as a PhD student. My Thesis topic was on the Molecular Dynamics Simulations of Extensional and Shear Rheology of Dendritic/Linear Polymer Blend Melts.
