1 I conduct research in the following areas: heat and mass transfer, thermal radiation, energy storage and conversion, heat storage, ground heat storage, thermochemical heat storage, phase change heat storage, heat and moisture transfer in building materials and porous media, pressure-retarded osmosis, intensification or limitation of heat transfer, modeling of heat and mass transfer processes, micro-macroscopic modeling of heat and mass transfer processes, thermal-flow modeling of devices, computational methods, numerical modeling, CFD. Examples of dissertation topics: Development of a model and investigation of heat and moisture transport in the multilayer protective clothing; Development of a method for prediction of effective (macroscopic) hygro-thermal and optical properties of the highly anisotropic medium; Development of the advanced micro-macroscopic model of transport phenomena in membrane used in the pressure-retarded osmosis (PRO) process.
2 The main areas of scientific of prof. Paweł Sobieszuk include chemical engineering and bioprocess engineering. His research works are tackling the problems concerning nanohydroxyapatite synthesis and characterization for application in bone regeneration therapy. Especially important is designing the method of obtaining composites of polymer and nanohydroxyapatite in such a way that the mechanical properties of polymer allow for it to be used in 3D printing while preserving the osteoinductive properties of hydroxyapatite. Because of these two properties, it is possible to use such composites in the 3D printing of osteoinductive implants of bones. His other study area focuses on gas-liquid systems, including nanobubble technology, properties, and application. Nanobubbles are a novel nanomaterial composed of gas spheres in liquid with or without a surfactant shell surrounding the gas. Such objects are used in multiple areas of both industry and medicine. Prof. Sobieszuk particularly finds it interesting to study the effect of gas nanobubbles on living matter, bacteria, microscopic fungi, and animal cells.
