Overview

The Thermofluids for Energy and Advanced Materials (TEAM) Laboratory focuses on the study and utilization of microfluidic and nanofluidic transport phenomena to achieve unique material designs, operation strategies, and water management techniques for clean energy technologies. In particular, we investigate thermofluidic transport in the porous media of polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel cells, PEM electrolyzers, and microfluidic fuel cells to achieve improved performance and design, as well as in geologic formations for carbon sequestration for long-term stability evaluation.
