Welcome to Micro and Nanoscale Transport Laboratory

“Everything that living things do can be understood in terms of the jiggling and wiggling of atoms.”

― Richard P. Feynman

Who We Are....

We are part of Fluid Mechanics Group, Department of Applied Mechanics at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras, Chennai.

Our main focus is to understand the flow phenomenon at the micro and nanoscale by employing simulation techniques like Molecular Dynamics, Dissipative Particle Dynamics, and Computational Fluid Dynamics. This helps in the design and optimisation of functional systems at the molecular scale. Our Lab growing significantly since it's inception in 2013. We are a group of 15 research scholars which includes 13 PhD, 1 MS scholars and 1 M.Tech Student. We collaborate with researchers from eminent research groups around the globe.
