We perform fundamental research in the areas of interfacial transport phenomena and thermodynamics across scales (nano/meso to macro), and on the development of transformative energy technologies. Intimately related to this is the development and understanding of new materials and processes with advanced properties and functionalities with respect to transport phenomena and energy.

Our teaching activities include lectures  at the bachelor and master level covering fundamental and applied aspects of thermodynamics, interfacial transport phenomena across scales (nano/meso to macro) and novel energy technologies.

Bachelor and master students also participate in our research by carrying out their bachelor, semester or master thesis with us. New opportunities are posted on our student projects page.
