Yogesh Jaluria is currently Board of Governors Professor at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, and Chairman of the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department. He served as the Interim Dean of the School of Engineering during 2008-2009. He received his B.S. degree from the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, India, in 1970, standing first in the Graduating class. He obtained his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Cornell University in 1972 and 1974, respectively. He worked at A T & T Bell Laboratories, Princeton, during 1974-76 and at the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, India, during 1976-80, before joining Rutgers University in September 1980. Professor Jaluria has carried out research in several diverse areas, particularly natural and mixed convection heat transfer, enclosure fires, thermal processing of materials, environmental transport processes, design of thermal systems, computational heat transfer and energy systems. His work in USA has been extensively supported by Federal agencies, such as the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Standards and Technology, by the State of New Jersey and by industry. In India, he was supported by the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research, the Department of Science and Technology, Steel Authority of India and by industry. He has also interacted with several industries and research centers in these research areas. Professor Jaluria is the author of over 400 technical publications, including over 170 in archival journals and 16 chapters in boooks. He has two patents in materials processing and some of his computer software has been copyrighted. He is the author of a graduate level book NATURAL CONVECTION HEAT AND MASS TRANSFER (Pergamon Press, 1980) and an undergraduate textbook COMPUTER METHODS FOR ENGINEERING (Prentice-Hall, 1988; Taylor and Francis, 1996). He is the first author of a graduate level book entitled COMPUTATIONAL HEAT TRANSFER (Hemisphere, 1986) and its greatly expanded and updated second edition (Taylor & Francis, 2003). He is also a co-author of a graduate book entitled BUOYANCY-INDUCED FLOWS AND TRANSPORT (Taylor and Francis, 1988). He is the author of another textbook DESIGN AND OPTIMIZATION OF THERMAL SYSTEMS (McGraw Hill, 1998), as well as its Second Edition (CRC Press, 2008) with Matlab applications. All these books have received outstanding reviews and the two books on Natural Convection have been translated into Russian. Professor Jaluria is also a coeditor of twelve conference proceedings, one book and two special issues of archival journals. Professor Jaluria has received several honors and awards, including the 2007 Donald Q. Kern Award from the American Society of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) for outstanding work in heat transfer or energy conversion, the 2007 Heat Transfer Division Classic Paper Award from the Americal Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the 2003 Richard Henry Thurston Lecture Award from ASME, the 2002 Max Jakob Memorial Award from AIChE and ASME for distinguished work in heat transfer, the 2000 Freeman Scholar Award for the application entitled "Fluid Flow Phenomena in Materials Processing," from ASME, the 1999 Worcester Reed Warner Medal for outstanding contribution to the permanent literature of engineering from ASME, the 1995 Heat Transfer Memorial Award for Science for significant research contributions to the science of heat transfer from ASME, the 1994 Distinguished Alumni Award from the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, the 1979 Young Scientist Medal from the Indian National Science Academy, and a Certificate of Recognition from the National Institute of Standards and Technology. He was the Hawkins Memorial Lecturer in Mechanical Engineering at Purdue University in 2006. He has been invited as a Distinguished Lecturer to NATO Advanced Study Institutes, as Research Leader to an NSF workshop, as speaker to a Department of Energy sponsored workshop on solar ponds, as panelist to national conferences, as invited, keynote or plenary speaker to over 20 international conferences, and as seminar speaker to many universities and research establishments. He has guided 25 Doctoral and 30 Master's theses and the research of 13 Post-Doctoral Fellows. Professor Jaluria is a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), an Associate Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, and a Member of the Combustion Institute and of the American Physical Society. He has been active as Committee Chairman, Program Chairman and Conference Chairman, within ASME. He served as a member of the Executive Committee of the Heat Transfer Division from 1998 to 2004, serving as Chair of the Division during 2002-2003. He is currently the Editor of the ASME Journal of Heat Transfer. He has also served as an Editor for Computational Mechanics, an international journal published by Springer International and as an Associate Editor for the ASME Journal of Heat Transfer. He is currently a member of the Editorial Advisory Boards for Numerical Heat Transfer, International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer, and International Communications in Heat and Mass Transfer. He has served on the Editorial Boards of several other journals, book series and international conferences.
