Associate Professor Jungho Kim Appointed ASME Fellow

Associate Professor Jungo Kim was recently elevated to Fellow status as a member of The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). Jungho is a pioneer in the use of microscale heater arrays to study the fundamental mechanisms by which heat is transferred during phase change processes. Early in his career he performed research on gas turbine heat transfer and his current interests include phase change heat transfer for electronic cooling, radiation absorption measurements of fuels at high temperatures, emissivity measurements, inverse heat conduction methods, and instrumentation.

He received his BSME from UC Berkeley (1982), and his MSME (1986) and Ph.D (1990) from the University of Minnesota. After graduation, he joined Arvin/Calspan Corporation in Buffalo, NY where he performed research in gas turbine heat transfer. He then taught at the University of Denver where he started research on gravity effects on boiling heat transfer using a microheater array. His research interests include phase change heat transfer for electronic cooling, radiation absorption measurements of fuels at high temperatures, emissivity measurements, inverse heat conduction methods, and instrumentation. He has published over 80 technical papers.
