Applied Math
Research Interests: Rotating thin films

Current projects: The influence of Marangoni forces on instabilities in spin coating

Interest in studying rotation of thin films comes from the industrial process of spin coating where undesirable fingering instabilities have been observed. I work on computational model which describes dynamics of spinning thin film including effects of all forces affecting the fluid on the fluid motion.

Areas of Interest:

Thin Films
Mathematical Modeling
Mathematical Biology


thin films, spin coating, mathematics modeling
