Dr. Tanmoy Maitra
Research Associate and Post-Doctoral Scholar
Tanmoy Maitra receives his B.S from University of Calcutta, and M.S from Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, India. In his master thesis, he investigated the catalytic activity of carbon nanotubes on the graphitic content to enhance the electrical conductivity of CNT-polymer derived carbon composite suspended fibers. Thereafter, he earned his PhD in Department of Mechanical and Process Engineering at Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH), Zurich under the direction of Prof. Dimos Poulikakos. The aim of his PhD thesis was to understand the physics of textured-surface/droplet interaction at conditions conducive to icing to address the surface icing issue. He currently holds a Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) fellowship, working as a postdoctoral research scholar with Prof. Ken Goodson. In his current research, he will investigate the role of heterogeneous wettability of porous matrices at micro and nano-scale on two-phase electronics cooling.
