My research is at the interface between soft condensed matter, hydrodynamics and nano-science. It is mostly curiosity driven. We combine experiments, theory, and molecular simulations to explore the intimate mechanisms of the dynamics of fluid interfaces from the macroscopic down to the molecular level, with applications in the fields of micro- and nano- fluidics, large scale hydrodynamics, material science, complex fluids, etc. My recent research interest is to take benefit of the unexpected fluid transport behavior occurring at the nanoscales to propose new routes for energy harvesting and desalination.
