Personal profile

Research interests

The main field of activity are investigations of thermophysical properties of liquid metals and alloys with various techniques such as subsecon pulse heating, DSC (Differential Scanning Calorimetry), and four point probes. Recently my work-group started levitation experiments with an electromagnetic levitator.
