Research in the Furlani group involves multidisciplinary modeling for emerging applications in the fields of micro and nanoscale science and technology. The main thrust of this work is the development of mathematical methods and models to enable the development of innovative materials and devices with design features and functionality that are engineered at the nanometer to micrometer length scale. Current research interests span the areas of: microfluidics, broad applications with an emphasis on biomedical devices; nanophotonics, metamaterials, plasmonics, biosensing applications; and magnetic particle applications, transport, assembly and bioapplications, magnetic drug delivery, magnetic-assisted gene transfection (magnetofection) and bioseparation.
