Experimental investigation of ice nucleation and impact of cold droplets on nanoengineered surfaces
Michael Grizen is investigating interfacial phenomena and phase change processes. Beforehand, Michael worked for four years as a thermal engineer in the space industry. He received his Bachelor (summa cum laude) and M.Sc. (direct track) from Tel-Aviv University. During his M.Sc. studies, he carried out research in the field of solar radiation harvesting. Michael’s Ph.D. project involves experimental investigation of ice nucleation and impact of cold droplets on nanoengineered surfaces. Through a better understanding of the nucleation process combined with rationally manufactured surfaces, he hopes to efficiently suppress ice and frost formation.
