Dr. Ristenpart's research is in complex transport phenomena, with an emphasis on using advanced experimental techniques to extract quantitative measurements from complicated phenomena. The Ristenpart group strives to answer fundamental scientific questions about a variety of systems where the transport behavior is paramount. Recent topics include electrocoalescence of charged droplets, shear-induced deformation of red blood cells, electrically-induced aggregation of colloids near electrodes, and turbulent dispersion of airborne pathogens.
