Multiscale Transport Process Laboratory (MTPL), led by Assistant Professor Kazuya Tajiri, investigates the multiphase, multiscale transport phenomena in the thermo-fluid systems.
At present, our primary target of study is polymer electrolyte fuel cells (PEFCs) for automotive application.
Our expertise includes
- ex-situ and in-situ measurement of mass and species transport properties
- characterization of chemical / electrochemical reactions and phase change
- PEFC in-situ diagnostics
- cell- / stack-level modeling and computation
- PEFC system modeling and analysis
Currently there are no postdoc or RA / TA position openings.
