March 2019: Zhanar Zhakiyeva visits from the University of Grenoble. Zhanar will spend four months at Princeton as a visiting student student research collaborator. Her research examines the structure and dynamics of water in ordinary Portland and low-CO2 cements.
February 2019: Myriam Agnel visits from the University of Orleans. Myriam will spend three months at Princeton as a visiting student student research collaborator. Her research examines the nano-scale properties of Fougerite (a.k.a green rust), an important anion exchanger in anoxic environments.
January 2019: Avery Agles joins the lab! Avery holds a Bachelor's in Chemical Engineering from Georgia Tech. He joins the lab as a PhD student in Chemical and Biological Engineering.
January 2019: Workshop on Transport in Complex Materials at Princeton. Ian, Sujit Datta, and Andrej Kosmrlj hosted a three-day workshop at the Princeton Center for Theoretical Studies (PCTS).
September 2018: Emily Sun was named a PECS scholar and elected as Editor-in-Chief of Highwire Earth, a science blog run by the Princeton University community.
September 2018: Xiaohan Li joins the lab! Xiaohan graduated from Peking University with a Bachelor's in Energy and Resource Engineering. She joins the lab as a PhD student in Civil and Environmental Engineering.
August 2018: Alex Fernandez-Martinez visits from the University of Grenoble. Alex is a CNRS Scientist in Grenoble and an expert in neutron and X-ray studies of mineral-water interfaces.
July 2018: Lynn Zheng visits from Imperial College. Lynn will spend three months at Princeton as a visiting student research collaborator. Her research focuses on links between the wetting properties of mineral surfaces and the stability of adsorbed water films.
About our research
Our group examines the fundamental properties of water at interfaces and their impact on chemistry, mechanics, and mass fluxes in natural systems. More
