Research - He is working on molecular-level modeling of thermal power plants, especially on the physics of rotating fluids and the phase change (liquid to gas and the opposite) as working fluid flows in heat exchangers and condensers.
Research Opportunities -Please contact Dr. Budiman for graduate studentship. He is looking for top students with strong analytical/computational skills
