Research Outline

Study of different thermfluidic phenomena on nano engineered metal surfaces, and nanoprinting


Tanmoy Maitra receives his B.S from University of Calcutta, and M.S from Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, India. In his master thesis, he investigated the catalytic activity of carbon nanotubes on the graphitic content to enhance the electrical conductivity of CNT-polymer derived carbon composite suspended fibers.

Thereafter, he earned his PhD in Department of Mechanical and Process Engineering at Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH), Zurich, under the direction of Professor Dimos Poulikakos. The aim of his PhD thesis was to understand the physics of textured-surface/droplet interaction at conditions conducive to icing to address the surface icing issue.

Prior to joining UCL, he worked as a postdoctoral research scholar with Professor K.E. Goodson at Stanford University. There, he worked on the role of heterogeneous wettability of porous matrices at micro and nano-scale on two-phase electronics cooling.
