Assistant Professor (ME, MSE)

  • Education Ph.D. University of California, Berkeley
  • Additional Affiliations Division of Materials Science & Engineering
  • Honors and Awards NSF Faculty Early CAREER Development Award, 2017
  • Areas of Interest Energy conversion and storage * Micro/nanofluidics * Phase change heat transfer
  • Research Areas His current research interests include: exploring anomalous transport phenomenon in 1-D or 2-D confined nanochannels; enhancing ion/molecule transport in batteries and fuel cells using ordered nanostructured materials; improving phase-change heat transfer based on patterned micro/nanostructures; developing new nanofluidic devices for biomolecule sensing and separation.
    Chuanhua Duan focuses his research on studying enhanced ion/molecule transport using ordered micro/nanostructures, for both fundamental understanding and practical applications in energy conversion/storage and biomolecular sensing/separation.
