Research Title
Advance Fundamental Understanding of Multiscale Fluid-Particle-Biota Interactions to Address Critical Environmental and Health Issues

No Monument Location

A wide variety of global environmental and health issues involve physical and biological interactions among fluids, particles/surfaces, and biota, at both micro- and macro-scales. However, interdisciplinary studies that involve both micro- and macro-scales are currently lacking because it is challenging to integrate techniques from multiple disciplines at multiple scales. Judy Yang’s research aims to advance fundamental understanding of the multiscale interactions among fluids, particles/surfaces, and biota, through original multiscale experiments, combining microfluidic and flume technologies.
