I'm a sixth-year graduate student at University of Delaware in the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering department. I work in Eric Furst's group on creating new colloidal materials. Thus far, the majority of my work has been on endoskeletal droplets, which are oil-in-water emulsions that can hold non-spherical shapes. I have also worked in Australia, creating non-spherical aerosol droplets in an international collaboration. Whether in aerosols or emulsions, controlling the shape of liquid interfaces allows us to create materials that more efficiently find, deposit on, and adhere to target surfaces, which are critical considerations when designing delivery vehicles for anything from cosmetics to pharmaceuticals.
