Dr Martin White

About

Overview

As a researcher my focus is on the development of small-scale energy systems suitable for the power generation from low and medium temperature heat sources, such as solar, biomass, geothermal and waste heat. In particular, the main focus of my current research is the improving fundamental understanding of different types of expander suitable for organic Rankine cycles.
