The focus of the Stadtherr research group is on the development and application of strategies for reliable engineering computing; of special interest are modeling problems that arise in the development of sustainable, energy-efficient, and environmentally-conscious processing technology, in particular the use of supercritical carbon dioxide and room-temperature ionic liquids as environmentally-benign replacements for traditional organic solvents.
