Wojciech Lipiński has been Professor at the Australian National University since 2016. He obtained his Master of Science degree in Environmental Engineering from Warsaw University of Technology in 2000, and doctorate in Mechanical and Process Engineering and habilitation in Energy Technology from ETH Zurich in 2004 and 2009, respectively. He previously held positions of Research Associate and Senior Research Associate at ETH Zurich (2004–2009), Assistant Professor at the University of Minnesota (2009–2013), and Associate Professor at the Australian National University (2013–2015).
Prof. Lipiński has published over 130 articles in refereed journals and conference proceedings, and contributed to several books, edited books and e-books. He served as an Associate Editor for the ASME Journal of Solar Energy Engineering (2011–2017), and guest editor for Numerical Heat Transfer Parts A and B (2011) and Optics Express (2015–2016). He is currently serving on editorial boards of Solar Energy, Journal of Quantitative Spectroscopy and Radiative Transfer, and Computational Thermal Sciences. He is a member of the Scientific Council and the Executive Committee of the International Centre for Heat and Mass Transfer. He is also involved in ASME, AIChE, OSA, and several other professional societies.
Prof. Lipiński's contributions to research and education have been recognised with several honours and awards including the Hilti Award for Innovative Research from ETH Zurich (2006), the College of Science and Engineering Outstanding Professor Award from the University of Minnesota (2010), and the Elsevier/JQSRT Raymond Viskanta Award in Radiative Transfer (2013).
