Martin van Eldik

Prof Martin van Eldik obtained a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the North-West University in Potchefstroom.
He is an associate professor in the School of Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering where his research group focus
on research relevant to the thermal-fluid industry with the emphasis on energy systems. This include research into
the next generation of heat pumps including the use of CO2 as refrigerant for high temperature applications.
