Our research output falls largely into four main categories.

Surface tension driven flows

  • Coalescence and break-up
  • Control of two-phase flows in micro-environments
  • Development of serial multiphase capillary high through experimentation reactors

Chemically reacting flows

  • Surface-catalysed reactions in structured gas phase reactors
  • Surface-catalysed reactions in three-phase structured reactors
  • Optimisation of solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs)


  • Reacting flows in microchannels
  • Control of two-phase flow in micro fuel cells
  • Instability and vibration in micro-fuel cells
  • Linear dichroism for detection of biomolecular structure

Simulation and visualisation

  • Computational models
  • Algorithmic development
  • Visualisation
