Interview with Dr. Razavi

Aanahita Ervin has received both the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) Grant and the Phillips66 Undergraduate Research Scholarship

The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program offers financial assistance for scholarly and creative projects under the mentorship of a faculty member. The  Phillips 66 Research Scholarship program is aimed at promoting research involvement of undergraduate students at CBME department at OU. Aanahita is studying the adsorption of surfactants onto colloidal particles. Congratulations Aanahita!

September 2020

We have received funding from the National Science Foundation on the topic of Janus nanoparticles in polymeric membranes (NSF Award # CBET-2005282)

In collaboration with Prof. Michele Galizia’s Membrane Research Lab at OU, we will be studying the structure-property correlations in this unique class of mixed-matrix membranes to engineer the resulting transport properties.

July 2020

Our group was awarded the 2020 ACS-PRF Doctoral New Investigator (DNI) grant

The Doctoral New Investigator grants program aims to promote the careers of young faculty by supporting fundamental research of high scientific caliber in the petroleum field. Under the 2-year support of this grant, we will shed a fundamental light on the link between the rheology of particle-laden interfaces and stability of Pickering foams. 

May 2020

We have received the Junior Faculty Fellowship (JFF) from the Vice President for Research at OU

The Junior Faculty Fellowship (JFF) Program is designed to help new tenure-track faculty members establish their research/creative activity and make progress to tenure by providing support in areas critical to the development of their programs. The awarded project, titled as “Harnessing Interfacial Rheology to Control Foam Stability”, is aimed at elucidating the role of interfacial rheology in performance of foams, especially those stabilized by non-ideal heterogenous colloidal particles. 

March 2020

Alexi Wenger has received the Phillips 66 Undergraduate Research Scholarship

The Phillips 66 Research Scholarship program is aimed at promoting research involvement of undergraduate students at CBME department at OU. Congratulations Alexi!

January 2020

We have received funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF Award # CBET-1934513)

This project titled as “Effect of heterogeneous particles and surfactants on the stability and rheology of fluid interfaces” seeks to gain fundamental knowledge on the interaction and synergism of heterogeneous colloidal particles and surfactant molecules in presence of interfaces using both experiments and coarse-grained simulations (in collaboration with Prof. Dimitrios V. Papavassiliou).

August 2019

Alexi Wenger has received the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) Grant

With the generous support of the Office of the Vice President of Research at OU, the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program offers financial assistance for scholarly and creative projects under the mentorship of a faculty member. Alexi is studying interfacial assembly of proteins. Congratulations Alexi!

April 2019

We have been awarded the Faculty Investment Program (FIP) grant from the Vice President for Research at OU

The Faculty Investment Program (FIP), operated by the Norman Campus Research Council, provides funding on a competitive basis to develop and expand the scholarly, i.e., research and creative, activities of Norman campus researchers. In this project, titled as “Janus nanoparticle membranes for CO2 separation”, we will study the use of Janus nanoparticles in composite membranes to facilitate and promote selective CO2 transport (in collaboration with Prof. Michele Galizia)
