My name is William, but everyone calls me Trey.  Currently I am  developing cannabinoid extraction technologies with Hemp Harvest Innovations.  This site details the research I conducted throughout my graduate and postgraduate studies.  The links to the left will direct you to more information about my publications, research collaborations, and teaching interests.  

I study the effects of time-periodic excitations on fluid interfaces, within which my interests are scientific, mathematical, and technological.  My eye towards technological application is shaped by my education in Chemical Engineering.

I especially appreciate when people reach out.  Contact me!

Here you can download my academic CV.

Oscillatory instability of a film heated by a thick substrate

These "collisions" visualize the emergence of oscillatory perturbations to a thin liquid film model.  For more information, see the video description or the project description for "Natural frequencies of thin liquid films."
