NanoTherm Research Group


Learning and research in the field of thermodynamics, heat transfer, aned nanotechnology has been a journey that has fulfilled our ambitions and continue to do so. We conduct research that will intersect multidisciplinary fields for energy applications. The immediate need for solving energy problems is highlighted by rapid growth of global population, escalation of environmental issues, and increased competition for dwindling resources.
We aim to bring about transformational knowledge for efficient harvesting of energy by fundamentally manipulating heat-fluid-surface interaction in multiple length and time scales. Our research involves mathematical modeling, simulation and experimentation in thermo-fluid system. As broad impact range of these systems, we have a strong emphasis on multidisciplinary collaboration with physicists, material scientists, and chemists.


Our work on icephobic surafecs is highlighted in UH Unct.
