My current research interests are in the area of molecular simulation of fluids for obtaining their thermodynamic and transports properties. We have used these methods to investigate phenomena such as osmosis, reverse osmosis, as well as electro-osmosis in a wide range of industrially important separations. Molecular simulation techniques are also being used to study droplet collisions in the presence of ambient gas. In addition, we have an interest in developing molecular based engineering correlations for thermodynamic and transport properties.
