Profiel

My expertise is multiphase fluid mechanics and transport phenomena. I am particularly attracted to problems at the interface between fluid dynamics and materials engineering, studied with the theoretical tools of mechanics and physico-chemical hydrodynamics.
Investigations in my group start from gathering data, using highly resolved simulations (both MD and continuum), experiments, or a combination of the two. Developing when possible a mathematical theory is the primary goal of much of what I do. 
The main motivation of my current research is to help the world moving away from oil and gas. Towards this goal, I focus my recent research in the following areas:
- flow of slurries and dispersions of carbon nanomaterials , particularly graphene. These have use in  electrodes and energy materials - liquid-phase exfoliation of layered and 2D materials - large-scale production of graphene powders for hydrogen or CO2 adsorption via spray methods - battery recycling via liquid-based processing
