Professor Shelley Anna

Professor Anna joined the Chemical Engineering department in 2008 after 5 years with Mechanical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon. Her group’s research focuses on microfluidics, interfacial fluid mechanics, and surfactant transport. Research projects involve developing innovative, microscale experimental methods to probe and control liquid-fluid interfaces, using scaling analysis, theory, and numerics as tools to complement experiments.

The Department of Chemical Engineering would like to congratulate Professor Anna on this great achievement.
