We study heat transfer, aiming to combine fundamental physics of micro and nanoscale heat and mass transport processes with novel surfaces & materials to provide creative solutions in thermal management. We focus on electronic packaging, microfluidic heat sink, and energy conversion devices for flexible electronics, data centers, and high power electronic systems
