Biography

I have always been fascinated by the way colloid drops (milk, coffee, paints etc.) stain surfaces when they dry. This has materialised in a PhD from the University of Edinburgh on understanding the coffee-stain formation mechanism from nanofluidic drops. During my PhD I gained knowledge in heat transfer, wetting and particularly multiscale surface patterning. I further developed my expertise in these areas at Kyushu University in Japan where I emphasized in how wetting influences phase-change and the associated heat transfer at all scales. Currently, I am a lecturer in mechanical engineering at UEA where I lead research in wetting physics, phase-change and surface patterning at all scales.

 

I always welcome email enquiries from potential PhD students at a.askounis@uea.ac.uk. Our research opportunities allow you to search for projects and scholarships and there is further information about becoming a Postgraduate Research student at UEA here.
