Research Interests

Dr. Pence's current research interests include single-phase and two-phase enhancement of microscale heat transfer using bio-insipired flow networks and in-situ vapor extraction. Studies are primarily experimental in nature but also include commercial CFD and numerical modeling for design optimization. Past research activities focused on fluidized bed hydrodynamics and heat transfer.

Dr. Pence is a member of ASME, vice chair of the Multiphase Flow Technical Committee of ASME-FED, and associate editor and board member of the journal Experimental Thermal and Fluid Sciences.
