Experience and Background:

Dr. Majid Molki has spent over 21 years performing research in thermal-fluid sciences at a number of universities. He joined SIUE in 2000. Before coming to SIUE, Dr. Molki performed extensive research in boiling and condensation of refrigerants, CO2 heat transfer in microchannels and control of frost by electric fields while at the University of Maryland, College Park. His current research is in flow boiling of refrigerants in plate evaporators with application to automotive air-conditioning. Dr. Molki is performing and overseeing research conducted in the closed-circuit wind tunnel. He is also involved in extensive computational modeling of fluid flow and heat transfer using FLUENT.
