Prof. Robert A. Taylor has served as an academic in the School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering since 2011.
Prof. Robert A Taylor's main research interest is in the development of ‘next generation’ solar and thermal energy systems. Drawing on the fields of heat transfer and nanotechnology, he is researching new/novel components, fluids, materials, and systems to increase the utilisation of solar energy in society. As such, his main goal is to provide a more efficient and more economic coupling between solar energy and useful thermal and/or electrical energy.
