The Pennathur Laboratory focuses on understanding and exploiting fundamental micro- and nanoscale phenomenon and coupled physics at the solid-liquid interface towards real-world applications in medical diagnostics, therapeutics, and energy. We specialize in the fields of MEMS, electrokinetics, electrochemistry, microfluidics and nanofluidics, utilizing theory, numerical simulations and well-defined experiments to reveal and exploit coupled physics within microdevices. Our projects span a wide range of disciplines which create unique synergies between projects, making it difficult to efficiently categorize our research work, but we try our best below!
