DSC_5893-fixedI use fundamental models and simulation methods to study the spatiotemporal behavior of colloidal suspensions in novel applications for sensors, smart and reconfigurable soft materials, lab-on-a-chip systems, and drug/cargo delivery.  My group also addresses research in fluid mechanics, transport processes, Brownian/Stokesian dynamics, colloidal sciences, and the mechanics of swimming of microorganisms and synthetic devices.

I’m also a champion of research, innovation, and entrepreneurship at UPRM and in the west coast of Puerto Rico.
