Welcome

Precise and targeted system manipulation aiming to obtain desired behavior requires thorough understanding of the underlying mechanisms governing physical limitations and instabilities. My research relies on the combination of realistic simulation and modern surface imaging/ resolved measuring and actuation techniques. In this spirit, engineering and scientific problems are attacked pertaining to interfacial phenomena coupling the interaction of liquids with electromagnetic fields and surface reaction with transport.
