Heat/Mass/Momentum Transport Phenomena and Interfacial Mechanics applied to:
(1) Intensification of heat exchange processes (boiling, condensation, evaporation, frying)
(2) Stability study and rheology of emulsions and foams (food, cosmetics, detergents)
(3) Water and wastewater quality control and development of relevant treatment technologies,
(4) Development of medical diagnostic devices for assessment of blood circulation in the human body (diagnosis of Coronary Artery Disease and Decompression Sickness),
(5) Wetting of solid surfaces (dyes, coatings, biofilms)
(6) Improvement and characterization of materials concerning their stability against degradation due to usage and ageing
