Welcome to the Wirth Lab homepage! We are part of the Department of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering at Cleveland State University. Our research focuses on the interactions, dynamics, and assembly of particles suspended in bulk fluids and at interfaces. In particular, we seek to measure and exploit weak ~kT scale interactions between complex colloidal particles, including carbon nanotubes, Janus particles, and ellipsoids, and subsequently leverage this new knowledge for implementation in a broad selection of industrial, engineering, and scientific areas. In addition to doing fundamental research, we anticipate working with the coatings, biomedical, and oil & gas industries on the development of innovative new products and tools.
We are currently recruiting a postdoctoral scholar. Click here if interested.
