Prof. Amitabh Narain

Course Title:  Boiling and Condensation: Theory and Applications

Prof. Amitabh Narain (Ph. D., University of Minnesota, 1983) is Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Michigan Technological University, USA; a Fellow of the ASME; an Associate Editor of the Journal of Heat Transfer; and Director of the Energy-Thermo-Fluids area in his department. His current research deals with state-of-the-art computational and experimental techniques for single-phase and phase- change (flow boiling and flow condensation) flows, particularly those related to energy technologies and thermal management. Dr. Narain has authored over 73 peer-reviewed articles. His research accomplishments have been highlighted through several keynote and invited lectures – including US websites such as by NSF in 2012 and by Research.Gov in 2013. He is active in teaching and mentoring students (graduate and undergraduate). Dr. Narain has served on several government panels and on ASME committees. Over the past twenty years, he has also been an active lead organizer for several symposia, topics, or sessions for ASME and other international conferences.
