The Nature-Inspired Fluids & Interfaces Lab is led by Dr. Jonathan Boreyko. Inspired by nature's design for animals, plants, and the weather, the group's research involves characterizing unexplored phenomena and designing innovative materials and systems. Research is a multi-disciplinary combination of fluids dynamics, heat transfer, interfacial phenomena, materials science, and renewable energy.

Dr. Boreyko was recently distinguished with an NSF Career Award for his proposal on engineering synthetic mangrove trees for water harvesting applications.
