Professional Summary

Dr. Ma’s research group focuses on understanding the flow behavior, or rheology, of complex fluids (e.g. suspensions, foams, and emulsions) thereby developing novel, scalable techniques for processing these fluids into multifunctional, high performance articles (e.g. films, fibers, and polymer composites). Current projects include how to exploit the size and shape of particles to: (1) create ultra-stable emulsions/foams (NSF award #1253613) and (2) improve anticancer drug delivery (NSF award #1250661). His group is also developing new techniques to improve the reliability and push the existing resolution limit of inkjet and 3D printing technology.
