About Amitabh Narain

I am currently a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), an Associate Editor of the Journal of Heat Transfer, and Director of the Energy-Thermo-Fluids area in the Mechanical Engineering-Engineering Mechanics Department at Michigan Technological University. My current research areas deal with state-of-the-art experimental and computational techniques for single-phase and phase-change (flow-boiling and flow-condensation) flows, particularly those related to energy technologies such as thermal management and power generation applications. I am very active in teaching and mentoring students (graduate and undergraduate), as well as in national-level professional service and international-level short courses.
