Professor Yoav Peles is the Lockheed Martin Endowed Professor and the Chair of the Mechanical and Aerospace Department at the University of Central Florida (UCF). Prior to joining UCF, he was with the Department of Mechanical, Aerospace and Nuclear Engineering (MANE) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI). He received his doctorate degree at Technion in Israel.
He studies convective heat transfer in microdomains, and published more than 90 peer-reviewed journal papers, about 50 conference papers, has several patents, written four book chapters, and is the author of a book entitled Contemporary Perspective on Flow Boiling Instabilities in Microchannels. Professor Peles organized several international conferences and workshops including the first Gordon Research Conference on Micro and Nano Scale Phase Change Heat Transfer, the International Workshop on Micro and Nano Structures for Phase Change Heat transfer, and the ASME International Conference on Nanochannels, Microchannels, and Minichannels 2013 (ICNMM 2013).For further information please contact Prof. Dulikravich at (305) 348-7016or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
