Experimental investigation of thermal machines based on the reversed thermodynamic Stirling cycle.
I am interested in the development of energy conversion systems. Currently, I am investigating thermal machines based on the reversed and direct thermodynamic Stirling cycle. Additionally, I am interested in commercialization of energy technologies as well as in organizational behavior of R&D teams and start-ups.
