Professor Amir Faghri, the editor-in-chief of Frontiers in Heat and Mass Transfer, has been awarded the 2010 Max Jakob Memorial Award. The award will be presented during the 2011 ASME International Mechanical Engineering Congress in Denver, Colorado on November 16, 2011. The Max Jakob Memorial Award is the highest honor in the field of heat transfer, and has been awarded annually since 1962 by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and the American Institute of Chemical Engineers to a distinguished scientist.

Dr. Faghri received the award “for extensive, profound and pioneering work in a wide variety of basic and applied problems in thermal fluids science and engineering and his distinguished leadership in engineering education as a teacher, mentor, researcher and administrator. He has made significant fundamental contributions in the field of transport phenomena in multiphase and energy systems, with applications in heat pipes, heat exchangers, energy storage, electronics cooling and fuel cells.”

Recently, an article was also published in the International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer in celebration of Professor Amir Faghri’s 60th birthday. The article can be read here.
