Simone Mancin

Simone Mancin leads the NHTlab. He is an Associate Professor at the Department of Management and Engineering of the University of Padova., Italy.  He is also Visiting Prof. at the dept. of Chemical Engineering of Brunel University London and member of Centre for Energy Efficient and Sustainable Technologies of Brunel  University London. His research is mainly focused on advanced materials, nano-depositions, nano-coatings, surface treatments, single- and two- phase heat transfer in enhanced surfaces and micro-geometries for electronic thermal management and air conditioning and refrigeration and Phase Change Materials for advanced latent thermal energy storages. He is author or co-author of about 175 papers, most published in the international scientific press. He is associate editor of HEDH, Part C: Journal of Mechanical Engineering Science, Heat Trabsfer Research and he is member of the Editorial Board of International Journal of Thermofluids, Heliyon and Energies.

Luca Doretti

Luca Doretti, graduated in Mechanical Engineering, Ph.D. in “Energy Management”, is Associate Professor of Applied Thermodynamics and he teaches three different courses.
At the moment he Full professor at the Department of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Eng. (ICEA) at University of Padova. His research activity (both experimental and theoretical) is mainly concerned with enhanced heat transfer during two-phase processes for refrigeration applications (refrigeration, air-conditioning, heat pump, absorption cycle, electronic cooling and so on), with thermodynamics of the inverse cycles and with thermophysical properties of refrigerant fluids. A specific topic of his scientific research is dedicated to nano-fluids application and experimentation with a new rig built up at the Nano Heat Transfer Lab. Luca Doretti is author or co-author of around 90 international papers.
