Solar thermal and waste low-grade heat will contribute to the future primary energy portfolio in many world countries. Therefore, thermally-driven sorption systems that make use of sorption materials are one of the key future technologies to obtain diverse useful effects such as heat transformation (cooling or heating), long term heat storage, water purification and drying.

By building on an existing state-of-the-art laboratory at The University of Edinburgh, this research is aimed at investigating novel materials, structures and systems for the next generation of thermally-driven sorption technologies for heating, cooling and eventually thermal energy storage.

Applications are welcomed from self-funded students, or students who are applying for scholarships from the University of Edinburgh or elsewhere.


Desirable criteria:

  • i) knowledge of thermodynamics; ii) basic skills on utilization of one computational tool such as Matlab, Mathcad, Mathematica etc…; iii) familiarity with computer aided design 3D tools.
