Research at the ‘Electrochemical & Surface Engineering’ - SURF - research group is all about ‘electrochemistry’ and ‘surfaces’ and their interaction. Our key research topics can be mapped into 4 overlapping themes:

- Corrosion technology
- Electrochemical Modelling
- Electrochemical and surface processes
- Multifunctional surfaces and new materials

SURF’s approach to deal with both fundamental and application driven aspects is one of combining experimental and modeling techniques. Experimental techniques are oriented towards surface and electrochemical characterisation. We combine expertise in both electrochemical methods and in-situ and ex-situ surface analytical techniques. Modeling in SURF’s context means construction of models and developing numerical tools to handle the mathematics behind the models.

The marine research focuses on corrosion of offshore structures (foundations).
