The Doyle Research Group focuses on fundamental and applied topics in soft matter. Much of our research is in the realms of micro/nanofluidic technologies, nanoemulsions, DNA biophysics, biosensing, and rheology. We utilize both experimental and computational approaches in our research in order to understand fundamental issues in a wide variety of applications and often collaborate closely with industry. A burgeoning interest is the use of microfluidics to synthesize microparticles for both fundamental colloidal studies and applications, such as multiplexed sensing, pharmaceutical manufacturing and water purification.
