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.
