Research lines

The Laboratory of Surface Engineering and Fluid Interfaces (SEFI Lab) brings about research and innovation for new technologies towards clean water and energy-efficient processes, two goals identified by UN for sustainable development.

In particular, activities focus on understanding interfacial transport phenomena, for the design of innovative smart interfaces. SEFI Lab is characterized by an interdisciplinary approach, at the interface between thermofluidics, material science and surface micro- and nano-engineering.
