Dr Daniel Orejon
Daniel Orejon (Dani) is a Lecturer in Chemical Engineering at the Institute for Multiscale Thermofluids at the University of Edinburgh, WPI-I2CNER Visiting Associate Professor at Kyushu University in Japan and Associate Editor for the International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer.
Dani’s research interests embrace from the fundamentals of heat and mass transfer of both evaporation and condensation phase-change, to phase change materials for energy storage, to liquid desiccants, at the droplet scale. More specifically how wettability and surface structure affect the advancing and receding dynamics of the triple phase contact line during phase-change from the macro- to the micro-scale, with special emphasis on heat transfer applications. More recently he is very much interested on how our surrounding environment such as relative humidity, atmosphere composition, presence of condensable and non-condensable gases, volatile and semi-volatile organic compounds, play a vital role on the wettability of solid surfaces and on the mechanisms of phase-change and heat transfer.
