Welcome to
Thermal Energy Engineering
Lab (TEEL)

Who we are
In Thermal Energy Engineering Lab, we study thermal energy transport, storage, and conversion from multiscale point of view, ranging from molecular scales to continuum scales. By exploring new physics and designing new materials, we seek for ways to recycle or handle waste heat energy, which is a key issue to realize sustainable society and energy.
