Current Research and Scholarly InterestsSamya's research interests are primarily soft materials and complex fluids. He uses experimental techniques of fundamental rheology in conjunction with non-Newtonian fluid mechanics to model, characterize, design, and understand soft material behavior. The applications of his research range from yield-stress fluid design in consumer products, industrial materials, and wildfire suppression. His current research projects as a postdoctoral researcher with Prof. Appel is in design and rheological characterization of novel hydrogels for biomedical applications, including improved drug delivery.
