July 15th, 2013: Prof. Varanasi wins 2013 Bergles-Rohsenow Young Investigator Award
Prof. Kripa Varanasi has received the 2013 Bergles-Rohsenow Young Investigator Award by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) that recognizes him work as an emerging leader at the crossroads of thermal sciences, nanotechnology and manufacturing.
The award is being bestowed by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) for developing a fundamental understanding of the role of surface chemistry and micro/nanoscale morphology on thermal and fluidic transport during phase change at multiple length and time scales using environmental scanning electron microscope-based experimental techniques, leading to scalable engineering surfaces for industrial applications.
