I currently hold a PhD in Applied Sciences from the Université Libre de Bruxelles, and have over 10 year experience as Senior Researcher at the Department of Chemical-Physics. Since 2012, I am coordinating the research unit on heat and mass transfer processes and the newly established unit on enhanced composite material research.
My research interests are on heat and mass transfer processes with a focus on evaporative convection, complex fluid dynamics and cooling application. I am working actively in the frame of the European Space Agency scientific activities and, in this framework, I am coordinating an experimental program on the behavior of complex fluid droplets in microgravity.
