In the face of the impacts of energy depletion and dangerous climate change, more efficient usage of energy is needed, and developing strategies to confront dangerous climate change is also required. We approach this topic from several directions, including enhanced efficiency for power generation and develop thermal management technologies to enable high-power density electronics applications. Ongoing research topic in the PCHT Lab lies on enhancing the phase-change heat transfer by micro/nanostructured surfaces.
