Dr. Heys' research involves the application of fundamental conservation laws, such as the conservation of mass, momentum, and energy, to improve the understanding of transport in biological systems. One area of expertise is problems in which there is a mechanical coupling between a moving fluid and biological material. Problems of current interest include the cricket sensory system and biofilms.
