Evelyn N. Wang received the Bergles-Rohsenow Young Investigator Award In Heat Transfer for the fabrication of patterned micro/nano structure surfaces that provide fundamental and mechanistic insights on micro/nanoscale heat transfer and fluid flow processes on nanostructures, and that have important applications in the cooling of microelectronic chips, solar thermal energy conversion and water desalination techniques.

The Bergles-Rohsenow Young Investigator Award in Heat Transfer is given to a young engineer who is under 36 and has received a Ph.D., or an equivalent degree in engineering. The individual must be committed to pursuing research in heat transfer, and must have demonstrated the potential to make significant contributions to the field of heat transfer. Such contributions may take the form of, but are not limited to, analytical/numerical methods, equipment/instrumentation, or experimentation - any of which should lead to peer-reviewed publications.
