The Hatsopolous Microfluids laboratory (HML) was created within the Department of Mechanical Engineering as a center for research activities which focus on understanding the dynamics of fluid with microstructure and the emerging science of microfluidics. The Hatsopoulos Microfluids Laboratory (HML) ( consists of a single open-plan 6300 ft^2 laboratory that houses seven active and three emeritus faculty plus over 45 students and postdoctoral researchers. A broad overview of the principal research areas of faculty members within the laboratory is summarized below:

  • optical imaging of complex flows
  • rheology and dynamics of complex fluids
  • dynamics of thin films
  • flow stability
  • flow-structure interactions
  • flow in microfluidic devices and 'lab-on-a-chip' applications
  • biofluid mechanics and biorheology
  • Capillary phenomena and contact line dynamics
