Dr. Robert Taylor is an Associate Professor in the School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering and in the School of Photovoltaic and Renewable Energy Engineering.
Taylor's main research interest is in the development of ‘next generation’ solar thermal collectors. Drawing on the fields of heat transfer and nanotechnology, he is researching new/novel working fluids and materials for solar systems. His main goal is to provide a more efficient or more economic coupling between solar energy and useful thermal and/or electrical energy.
