Welcome to the Vlachos Research Group

Our research group’s interest lie in the reaction engineering and materials synthesis areas and in particular in the interplay of chemistry with transport over multiple length and time scales. Our research group attempts to build first principles, hierarchical, multiscale models and simulations and validate them by comparison to a hierarchy of experiments for a variety of applications. This enables us to design processes, which are safer, environmentally benign, economically viable, and of higher quality/precision.
