Professor, Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
University of Florida, USA
Jacob N. Chung is the Andrew H. Hines, Jr./Progress Energy Eminent Scholar Chair Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of Florida. He is also the Director of micro-Scale and Microgravity Fluid Mechanics and Heat Transfer Lab at the University of Florida. He is a fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). From 2002-2005, he served as an associated editor for the ASME Journal of Heat Transfer in the areas of phase-change heat transfer and multiphase flows. Dr. Chung’s research activities for the past thirty years have been in the general areas of fluid mechanics and heat transfer with a special focus on bubble and droplet dynamics and heat transfer, phase change heat transfer, multiphase flows, microgravity boiling, laminar-turbulent transition, turbulence in heated flows, nano- and micro-scale thermal transport phenomena, and cryogenic two-phase boiling heat transfer. For the past eight years, he has focused on the thermochemical biomass to energy conversion and biofuel production. He has authored and co-authored a total of 160 archival journal papers in the above research areas. Dr. Chung and two co-authors published a book entitled “Transport Phenomena with Drops and Bubbles”.
