Patrick Wins ASME Bergles-Rohsenow Young Investigator Award in Heat Transfer

Patrick has been awarded the 2016 ASME Bergles-Rohsenow Young Investigator Award in Heat Transfer for significant heat transfer research that has produced experimental and analytical advancements in areas including thermal transport across interfaces, reduced thermal conductivity materials, electron-phonon coupling, and transport of electrons and phonons.

The Bergles-Rohsenow Young Investigator Award in Heat Transfer is given to a young engineer that is under 36 years of age and has received a Ph.D. or 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.

Established by the Heat Transfer Division in 2003, the award was funded through the efforts of Arthur Bergles and Warren Rohsenow who are well known for their accomplishments in heat transfer research and for their mentoring of young researchers.
