View Research Gate Profile

Marc J. Assael began his thermophysical career in 1980 when he received his PhD in chemical engineering from Imperial College London. In 1982, he was elected Lecturer in Heat Transfer for the Faculty of Chemical Engineering at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, and later advanced to become a Professor of Thermophysical Properties. Marc Assael also served as Vice-Chairman and Chairman of the Faculty between 1991 and 2011. In addition to his academic contribution to the University, Professor Assael established the Laboratory of Thermophysical Properties & Environmental Processes in 1983, following five years of research with the transient hot-wire technique. With a career spanning over 35 years, Marc Assael has published more than 186 papers in international journals, 163 papers in conference proceedings, 29 chapters, and 9 books. Prof. Assael currently serves as the reviewer for 59 International scientific journals around thermophysical properties, and as the Associate Editor for the International Journal of Thermophysics and IChemE, Education for Chemical Engineers, and in the Editorial Board of High Temperatures High Pressures. Prof. Assael is a national delegate in the European Union, the European Federation of Chemical Engineering, as well as many international scientific organizations. With his years of valuable contribution, 6500 citations to his name, and dedication to the scientific community, Prof. Marc Assael is regarded as one of the founding fathers of modern thermal conductivity.
