Dr. Jiro Aoki was a guest researcher at our institute from October 2015 till December 2015. He was working on the local local mass transfer phenomena from single CO2 Taylor bubbles in vertical channels related to DFG SPP 1506 ("Transport Processes at Fluidic Interphases")
Dr. Aoki was a Ph.D. canidate form the Department of mechanical Engineering at Kobe University in Japan under the supervision of Pro. Akio Tomiyama. A joint oral presentation at the ICMF 2016 was accepted based on the results of his investigation at our institute (9 International Conference on Multiphase Flows, 2016, Florence, Italy: "Local mass transfer phenomena at single Taylor bubbles in a vertical mini channel", Sven Kastens, Jiro Aoki, Chiara Pesci, Holger Marschall, Kosuke Hayashi, Michael Schlüter, Dieter Bothe, Akbio Tomiyama).
