6th International Conference on Multiphase Flow and Heat Transfer (ICMFHT 2021)
Due to COVID'19 pandemic it will be done VIRTUALLY
The keynote speakers for the 6th International Conference on Multiphase Flow and Heat Transfer (ICMFHT 2021) will be announced shortly! Thank you for your patience:
Dr. Christos Markides
Imperial College London, UK
Christos Markides is Professor of Clean Energy Technologies, Head of the Clean Energy Processes Laboratory, and leads the Experimental Multiphase Flow Laboratory, which is the largest experimental space of its kind at Imperial College London. He is also, amongst other, Editor-in-Chief of ‘Applied Thermal Engineering’, and a member of the UK National Heat Transfer Committee. He has published >250 journal papers and >300 conference papers on topics relating to his keynote speech. He won multiple awards including IMechE’s ‘Donald J. Groen’ outstanding paper prize in 2016, IChemE’s ‘Global Award for Best Research Project’ in 2018, the Engineers without Borders ‘Chill Challenge’ in 2020, and received Imperial College President’s Award for Research Excellence in 2017.
Topic of Keynote: State-Of-The-Art Laser-Diagnostic Measurement Techniques Applied To Multiphase Flows
Dr. Gretar Tryggvason
Johns Hopkins University, USA
Gretar Tryggvason is the Charles A. Miller, Jr. Distinguished Professor at the Johns Hopkins University and the head of the Department of Mechanical Engineering. He received his PhD from Brown University in 1985 and was on the faculty of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor until 2000, when he moved to Worcester Polytechnic Institute as the head of the Department of Mechanical Engineering. Between 2010 and 2017, he was the Viola D. Hank professor at the University of Notre Dame and the chair of the Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering.
Professor Tryggvason is well known for his contributions to computational fluid dynamics; particularly the development of methods for computations of multiphase flows and for pioneering direct numerical simulations of such flows. He served as the editor-in-chief of the Journal of Computational Physics 2002-2015, is a fellow of APS, ASME and AAAS, and the recipient of several awards, including the 2012 ASME Fluids Engineering Award and the 2019 ASTFE Award.
Topic of Keynote: Numerical Simulations of Complex Multiphase Flows: Opportunities and Challenges
