The analysis of such highly non-linear and multi-scale problems poses formidable challenges. Laboratory experiments resolving the particle dynamics have only recently become possible, and direct numerical simulations of such systems are still immensely difficult.</span></div> <div>In this talk I describe recent progress in understanding the dynamics of turbulent aerosols. We formulated and analysed statistical models that  capture the relevant physics, that account for the statistical properties of the turbulent flow, and that allow systematic mathematical analysis using dynamical-systems theory. I summarise how this helps to understand fundamental mechanisms determining the particle dynamics: small-scale fractal clustering, caustic singularities, and anomalously large relative particle velocities. I highlight successes and failures of this approach, as well as the most important open questions.</div> <div><br /></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial">(Reference: K.

The chemical industry currently relies on catalysts, materials that speed up reactions, in 90% of its processes, making catalysis one the most prominent engines of our society. <br /><br />Catalysis will play a pivotal role in the transition from our fossil fuel-based society to a more sustainable and renewable society. Therefore, the design of new catalysts is crucial to the development of emerging chemical and electrochemical processes for sustainable energy production and storage. Developing novel catalytic systems for such a broad range of emerging applications, while facing metal scarcity issues, is challenging.<br />The key to designing new catalysts is understanding the complexity and dynamic nature of the catalyst surface – where the reaction takes place - during reaction. This challenge can be addressed by taking a multidisciplinary approach involving the design and testing of novel catalytic materials, and by using and developing cutting-edge new characterization techniques to gain fundamental understanding of the working catalyst. Applied to industry-relevant thermocatalytic and electrocatalytic reactions, this integrated process will help create a sustainable future through catalysis. <br /><br /></div> <div><div><span style="font-weight:700">Contact: </span><a href="mailto:tomas.kaberger@chalmers.se"><span style="background-color:initial">T</span><span style="background-color:initial">omas Kåberger</span></a><span style="background-color:initial">​, Director, Energy Area of Advance. </span></div> <div><a href="mailto:sonia.yeh@chalmers.se">Sonia Yeh​</a>, Co-Director, Energy Area of Advance. </div></div>https://www.chalmers.se/en/areas-of-advance/energy/calendar/Pages/assistent-profseminar-Dasun-Perera.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/areas-of-advance/energy/calendar/Pages/assistent-profseminar-Dasun-Perera.aspxSocializing sustainable energy systems<p>OOTO Café, café, Sven Hultins Plats 2, Johanneberg Science Park 2</p><p>Dr. Dasun Perera will give his research presentation for Assistant Professor within the Energy Area of Advance.

However, the deep decarbonization of urban systems leads to a complex energy ecosystem that consists of strong interdependence among different sectors. <br />The trilemma of improving efficiency, resilience, and sustainability makes it more challenging to design such ecosystems. The importance of moving from the centralized modeling approach to a decentralized architecture to address this bottleneck will be discussed in the lecture. The novel concept of Urban Cell (based on a decentralized modeling approach), inspired by the wood-wide web mimicking the natural ecosystem among trees, will be introduced. Finally, the potential of the Urban Cell to improve sustainability, efficiency, and climate resilience of the energy ecosystem will be discussed.<br /><br /><div><span style="font-weight:700">Contact: </span><a href="mailto:tomas.kaberger@chalmers.se"><span style="background-color:initial">T</span><span style="background-color:initial">omas Kåberger</span></a><span style="background-color:initial">​, Director, Energy Area of Advance. </span></div> <div><a href="mailto:sonia.yeh@chalmers.se">Sonia Yeh​</a>, Co-Director, Energy Area of Advance. ​</div></div> <div><br /></div></div>https://www.chalmers.se/en/research/strong/nano/calendar/Pages/assistant-professors-candidates-nano.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/research/strong/nano/calendar/Pages/assistant-professors-candidates-nano.aspxAssistant Professors Nano 2022 - research presentations<p>Kollektorn, lecture room, Kemivägen 9, MC2-huset</p><p>​The candidates will give their research presentations for Assistant Professor within the Excellence Initiative Nano.
