About the Serial Volume Editor

Wojciech Lipinski

Professor Wojciech Lipiński is the Leader of the Solar Thermal Group at The Australian National University (ANU). He obtained his Master of Science degree in environmental engineering from Warsaw University of Technology (2000), doctorate in mechanical and process engineering from ETH Zurich (2004), and habilitation in energy technology from ETH Zurich (2009). He previously held positions of Research Associate (2004-2006) and Senior Research Associate at ETH Zurich (2006-2009), Assistant Professor at the University of Minnesota (2009-2013), and Associate Professor at The Australian National University (2013-2015). Professor Lipiński's research and teaching interests are in the area of thermofluids and reaction engineering applied to energy and environmental technologies. His core expertise is in radiative heat transfer, multiphase reactive flows and solar thermochemistry. He has published over 160 articles in refereed journals and conference proceedings, and contributed to several books, edited books and e-books. He is currently serving on editorial boards of Journal of Quantitative Spectroscopy and Radiative Transfer, Computational Thermal Sciences, and Solar Energy. He is Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, and a member of the Scientific Council and the Executive Committee of the International Centre for Heat and Mass Transfer. He is also involved in AIChE, OSA, and several other professional societies. Professor Lipiński's contributions to research and education have been recognised with several honours and awards including the Hilti Award for Innovative Research from ETH Zurich (2006), the ANU College of Science and Engineering Outstanding Professor Award from the University of Minnesota (2010), the Elsevier/JQSRT Raymond Viskanta Award in Radiative Transfer (2013), the Future Fellowship by the Australian Research Council (2014), and the Yellot Award by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (2020).
