Josua Meyer

Professor Josua Meyer is a member or fellow of various professional institutes and societies such as ASME, ASHRAE, AIAA, and the Royal Aeronautical Society. He is registered as a professional engineer by the Engineering Council of South Africa. He is leading the Clean Energy Research unit that he established with a broad focus on thermal sciences and fluid flow, but with a narrower focus on heat exchangers. His heat exchanger work focused on fundamental work of flow in the transitional flow regime, mixed convection, nanofluids, boiling, and condensation. On an applications level his work focuses on thermal-solar-, wind- and nuclear energy. He has received 11 different national teaching awards from three different universities, as well as an international award, in 2013, for “Best professor in mechanical and aeronautical engineering”. He has won more than 45 research awards including 25 awards for best article of the year or best conference paper. His is a “highly cited researcher” according to the ISI, and ranked among the top 0.1% in engineering. He is on the editorial board of 13 journals and is editor of 7 journals in his field of research.
