My research focuses on flows in the presence of a free surface, such as thin liquid films, drops or bubbles. These flows are governed by capillary forces and wetting interactions, and naturally lead to many interesting shapes and phenomena. I am also interested in the elastic interaction of fluids with soft boundaries. These “Soft Wetting” phenomena arise for example for liquid drops moving over very soft gels or in lubrication of sliding solids.
