Research Interests

David G. Foster, Ph.D.
Department of Chemical Engineering
University of Rochester

My research interests are at the intersection of Transport Phenomena (fluid mechanics, mass transfer, heat transfer) and Materials Science. My work includes bioengineering, nanoscience and technology, electrochemical engineering, energy and polymer chemistry.

The goal of my work is to understand and apply the principles of transport phenomena to modern problems in both classical chemical engineering areas as well as in biomedical engineering research. Recent work includes the creation of nanoparticle coatings for enhanced capture of flowing cells in microtubes. We are currently working to understand ways to capture cancer cells in blood flow as well as using CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) to model various complex flow systems.
