Personal Profile

Greg Naterer is Dean of the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science and a professor of mechanical engineering at Memorial University of Newfoundland, Canada. Dr. Naterer is an innovative leader in engineering education and research. He has served the engineering profession with dedication and commitment to excellence in teaching and research. He was born in Toronto, Ontario, and received his PhD in mechanical engineering from the University of Waterloo in 1995. Dr. Naterer and his wife, Josie, have three children.


Dr. Naterer has served in prominent national and international leadership roles, including as Chair of the Discovery Grant Committee (Mechanical Engineering) of Canada's Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) and Chair of the Canadian National Council of Deans of Engineering and Applied Science of Canada (NCDEAS). He is the editor-in-chief of an international journal — AIAA Journal of Thermophysics and Heat Transfer. Among his awards and honours, he received the EIC Julian C. Smith Medal of the Engineering Institute of Canada, the CSME Jules Stachiewitz Medal of the Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering, and a Best Professor Teaching Award. Dr. Naterer is a Fellow of the Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering (CSME), American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and Engineering Institute of Canada (EIC).

Research Highlights

Dr. Naterer has made significant contributions to mechanical engineering in the fields of energy systems, heat transfer and fluid mechanics. He led an international hydrogen energy consortium, involving eight collaborating institutions, five countries and six industrial partners, which developed the world’s first large-scale Cu-Cl cycle of thermochemical water splitting for sustainable hydrogen production. He has (co-) authored over 200 journal papers, six patents and three books in the fields of thermal/fluid and energy systems.
