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

The Gupta research group—known as the Laboratory of Interfaces, Flow and Electrokinetics (LIFE)—employs theoretical, numerical, and experimental methods to study transport phenomena in electrochemical, microfluidic, and biophysical systems. Their research aims to illuminate the underlying principles governing these systems, leading to advances in energy storage technologies, miniaturized lab-on-a-chip devices, and the development of next-generation artificial skin. Our work has been covered in popular press, including CNN, The Daily Mail, Newsweek, and many others. 

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 always 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.
