3. CURRENT RESEARCH INTEREST

My research is focused at the interface of nanotechnology and energy science, i.e. engineering and utilizingunique properties of nanomaterials to enhance energy conversion and transportation processes. It appliesclassical thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, heat transfer and combustion concepts cross the boundaries ofnanotechnology, materials, chemistry, physics, medics and engineering. More specifically, my researchincludes:

Nanofluids technology: engineering stable suspensions of nanoparticles (colloids in general) for enhanced heat transfer applications.

Nanofuel technology: investigating the oxidation, ignition and combustion of nanoparticles and their energy applications:

Phase change technology: including flow boiling in microgeometries, heat pipe technology,cryogenic flow and heat transfer, and phase change materials for energy storage.

Multiscale modelling: from molecular dynamics (MD) to continuity modelling including MD for single droplets evaporation and interactions of two and multiple nanoparticles, and two fluids modelling for engineering problems.

Nanoscale energy conversion and transport: fundamental understanding of the process through experiments and modelling.

Renewable energy and fuels: including hydrogen, liquid nitrogen, biofuels and other potential fuels. I am currently leading a team of ~10 researchers working at the interface of nanomaterials and energy engineering. My strong interest in cutting-edge research has resulted in ~100 technical publications of which ~ 60 were referred journal publications, and established me as a leading expert in using nanomaterials for energy applications (nanofluids, nanofuels etc). This has been evidenced by

Editorial board of <International Journal of Nanoparticles> and <International Journal of

Nanomanufacturing>, guest editor of <Journal of Chemical Technology and Biotechnology ><

Progress in Natural Science >

Editor-in-chief of a new book, Nanomaterials for clean energy applications, to be published by Springer, 2010.

Invited session Chair of nanofluids in ASME Micro/Nanoscale Heat Transfer Conference in 2008, invited keynote lecture at the ECI conference, Nanofluids: Fundamentals and Applications 2007 and invited participation of International Nanofluid Properties Benchmark Exercise (INPBE) coordinated by MIT.

International advisor of a 1-million dollar nanofluid project (led by Prof. Gherhardt Ribatski of Universidade de São Paulo and funded by CAPES, Brazil). Invited visit and lecturing in 2010

Over 600 citations in my nano-related paper since 2005.
