Research Interests

  • Precision measurement of the thermophysical properties of fluids and their mixtures
  • Development of molecular-thermodynamic models and correlations
  • The purpose of measuring, simulating, interpreting and correlating thermodynamic properties for a variety of fluids and their mixtures is to provide information for process and product design in the chemical and related industries.
