"The scholars program would allow me to network and meet fellow undergraduate researchers from different fields of study since other research opportunities would restrict you to the research group and department."
I am looking forward to attend graduate school in a prestigious university. My long-term scientific goal is the investigation and design of self-assembled patterned electronic and photonic materials using interfacial instabilities. To reach that, I will focus in one of the following topics during graduate school: Complex fluids and multiphase flow, microfluidics, applied mathematics to dynamical systems, material surfaces, interfacial instabilities, energy conversion, nanotechnology.

Hobbies and Interests
- I enjoy any activity involving being in the sun, from simply sitting in the sun to sailing in the sun. My interest in new activities grows spontaneously, and I usually enjoy all new activities that involves practical thinking and handling tools; i.e. I enjoy building things.
This project focuses on the experimental investigation of evaporating ethanol layers. The critical conditions for the onset of flows in the liquid will be determined and compared to a model. Evaporation plays a key role in the onset of patterns seen in many natural(dried lakes) and industrial processes (dried films on substrate).
