Team leaders:

Ao. Univ.Prof.Michael Harasek Dipl.-Ing. Dr.techn. Michael Harasek

is a chemical engineer. His main research topics are separations engineering; membrane technology; computational fluid dynamics (CFD) for process engineering applications, modelling of reactive and multiphase systems, transient flows; and experimental fluid dynamics for the validation of CFD and the determination of boundary conditions using Laser Doppler velocimetry (LDV), particle dynamics analyzers (PDA), particle image velocimetry (PIV) and related methods.

Margit GföhlerUniv.Prof. Dipl.-Ing. Dr.techn. Margit Gföhler

is a mechanical engineer. Her main interest are mechanical phenomena in our body - the mechanics of muscles that are coordinated in most complex ways to move our body segments smoothly, or the (fluid)mechanics in our cardiovascular system that provides nutrients to each of our cells - and her research aims to apply engineering principles to assist or replace body functions in case of impaired functionality due to injury or disease.
