About the Editors

W.J. Minkowycz is the James P. Hartnett Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He joined the faculty at UIC in 1966. His primary research interests lie in the numerical modeling of fluid flow and heat transfer problems. Professor Minkowycz is currently the editor-in-chief of the International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer, Numerical Heat Transfer, and International Communications in Heat and Mass Transfer. He has won numerous awards for his excellence in teaching, research, and service to the heat transfer community.

E.M. Sparrow is a professor of mechanical engineering at the University of Minnesota. He has taught and performed research there since 1959. Prior to that, he worked in industry. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering, a Max Jakob awardee, and is a Morse Alumni Distinguished Teaching Professor and Institute Professor. He has published more than 750 peer-reviewed articles on a wide variety of topics in heat transfer and fluid flow and has guided the research for 90 Ph.D. degrees and 215 MS degrees.

Dr. John Abraham has worked in the area of thermal sciences for approximately 20 years. His research areas include nanoscale thermal processes, energy production and distribution, climate monitoring, and medical device development. He has approximately 150 journal publications, conference presentations, book chapters, and patents. Dr. Abraham teaches courses in undergraduate and graduate mechanical engineering programs at the University of St. Thomas, in St. Paul, Minnesota.
