I am a fourth year graduate student focusing on the dynamics of wet gas-particle systems. Specifically, I deal with liquid transport, agglomeration and reactions in fluidized beds. I am interested in the film formation on particles, the associated heat and mass transfer, and the effect of liquid films on the dynamics of a fluidized bed. I combine well-established computational fluid mechanics (CFD) tools with self-developed granular flow software for a rigorous analysis of these systems.
