Background

Andrey Gunawan is a research faculty at the Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering with a demonstrated history of writing winning proposals and leading interdisciplinary research teams in projects funded by the Department of Energy (DOE) and industrial partners. Andrey is currently co-leading a $2.2 million DOE Solar Energy Technologies Office’s Gen3 CSP program on researching high temperature thermophysical property measurements of heat transfer media and containment materials, which will ultimately provide the necessary data to advance high-temperature concentrating solar power systems. Andrey is skilled in thermal systems practices (thermal design, analysis and hardware) from DAQ system design and instrumentation selection (e.g., extreme temperatures, vacuum, corrosive materials) to steady-state and transient thermal characterization techniques (LFA, 3-omega, DSC, TGA). His current research interests also include electric vehicles. Outside the lab, Andrey loves teaching ME-3322 Thermodynamics. He has also been actively contributing to ASME FutureME community as motivational speakers through events such as Mini-Talks and E-Fests, which recordings can be found in ASME's YouTube.
