Electrohydrodynamics (EHD) of viscous drops and vesicles is of great relevance in biomedical, engineering and industrial applications. In this talk I will focus on results on this subject from my collaborations with various groups over the years.
Modeling results are presented from investigating the EHD of vesicle and viscous drop under an electric field.

How fast can a liquid wet (or unwet) a solid support? This is important to a range of industrial applications from semiconductor fabrication by immersion lithography to the management of liquid propellants in spacecraft. 'Dynamical contact line' studies have historically taken a visco-capillary or low Reynolds number perspective. This perspective brings to mind stress singularity, slip lengths, microscopic and macroscopic contact angles, etc. – all fundamental issues raised in the ground-breaking studies of Scriven, Dussan V., Hocking, Cox, de Gennes and others.
