Professor Karnik addresses real-world challenges with his micro- and nano-fluidics research.
Tiny graphene pores created by Rohit Karnik are uniquely selective and may work well as environmental sensors.
A fabrication technique developed by Associate Professor Rohit Karnik could be integrated into manufacturing to make large-scale membranes that filter out small molecules and salts.
