Welcome to the Breuer Lab at Brown University. We are active in research and education covering a wide variety of topics, including:

  • Animal motion, in particular, bat flight and bacterial motility
  • Fluid-Structure interactions for flight vehicles and energy harvesting
  • Micron and nanometer scale fluid mechanics, slip flows, contact lines.
  • Bio-insipired flight robotics and flow control
  • Diagnostic methods for fluid mechanics

Our group includes undergraduate and graduate students, post-docs, visiting scientists and faculty. We draw on backgrounds in Engineering, Ecology and Evoutionary Biology, Physics, Applied Mathmatics and Computer Science.
