Engineering dean appointed editor-in-chief of international journal
The dean of engineering and applied science at Memorial has been appointed editor-in-chief of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics’ (AIAA) Journal of Thermophysics and Heat Transfer (JTHT).
“I’m delighted to receive this honour and to have been selected by an international committee,” said Dr. Naterer.
JTHT is the premier technical journal that deals with thermal energy conversion, storage and heat transfer including conductive, convective and radiative modes and the effects of the environment.
This is the first time an editorship of one of AIAA’s prestigious series of technical journals has been held outside the United States. AIAA is the largest aerospace professional society in the world, serving a diverse range of more than 35,000 individual members from 80 countries and 100 corporate members.
Dr. Naterer’s research interests include energy systems, fluid mechanics, and convective and multiphase heat transfer. He has contributed numerous technical papers, three books and several patents in the fields of thermal/fluid systems. He recently received the 2014 Engineering Institute of Canada’s Julian C. Smith Medal in the development of Canada.
“The process to select a new editor-in-chief was a time-consuming and rigorous one,” said Vigor Yang, AIAA vice-president, publications. “We believe we have selected an outstanding future editor-in-chief with the full and enthusiastic support of a distinguished search committee comprised of Dr. Naterer’s peers. We all look forward to working with him to elevate the journal to the next level of success.”
