Welcome! This research group focuses on experimental work related to fundamental and applied topics in heat transfer, fluid dynamics, energy systems, and interfacial phenomena. For more information on projects, please see here.
We are always looking for interested and motivated undergraduate students and visiting scholars (no PhD students at the moment) to participate in our research efforts.
