Welcome to the Laboratory of Interfaces, Flow, and Electrokinetics (LIFE) in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at CU-Boulder. 

The overarching goal of LIFE is to uncover the full potential of interfacial science to address societally relevant problems of energy storage, desalination technology, and active matter for biomedical applications. At LIFE, we seek to tackle these challenging problems using a range of theoretical, numerical, and experimental techniques. 

The details of our specific projects are provided in our research section. We also invite you to check out our publications. If you are interested in collaborating, please feel free to reach out to us over email. 

Open Positions: We are looking for enthusiastic graduate students and undergraduate students who are interested in solving challenging problems in chemical engineering. Interested students should write to ankur.gupta@colorado.edu.
