[Multiscale Research & Engineering Laboratory]
Multiscale Research & Engineering Laboratory (MREL) is a research group of Prof. Shalabh C. Maroo in the L. C. Smith College of Engineering and Computer Science, Syracuse University. The group's research interests are highly multidisciplinary, in the areas of multi-scale transport phenomenon, thermal management, and bio-mechanical systems with a focus on energy and water desalination, and an emphasis on using the fundamentals of nano-science and nano-technology to build efficient macro-scale mechanical systems.
