We are an experimental and theoretical research group headed by Asst. Prof. Alexandros Terzis and based in the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering at the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology.

Our research focuses on engineering thermo-fluids and the physics of transport phenomena across scales, with emphasis on energy conversion and propulsion systems. In particular, we study how fluid, heat and mass transfer are coupled in the vicinity of interfaces and explore the interplay of these with novel surfaces and materials. To achieve this, we design and conduct experiments that reveal the fundamental dynamics of a vast array of interface-driven processes, in multi-phase media, and on multiple time- and length-scales. We develop and employ a variety of optical flow diagnostics and thermophysical measurement techniques, coupled with theoretical and numerical approaches.
