Research Interests

Brian Iverson utilizes heat transfer and thermodynamic principles to address needs related to power systems, sensing, thermal management and microfluidics. His research begins at the nanometer scale with high-surface area to volume ratio structures that can be applied to industrial-sized components and bridge the gap between lab-scale devices and real-world applications. Examples include:

Enhanced convective transport
Condensation at superhydrophobic surfaces
Microfabrication of sensors and actuators
Thermal energy storage
Absorptive surfaces for solar energy collection
Power systems for renewable energy
