Wojciech Lipiński is Professor and Leader of the Solar Thermal Group at The Australian National University. He obtained his Master of Science degree in environmental engineering from Warsaw University of Technology (2000), doctorate in mechanical and process engineering from ETH Zurich (2004), and habilitation in energy technology from ETH Zurich (2009). He previously held positions of Research Associate (2004-2006) and Senior Research Associate at ETH Zurich (2006-2009), Assistant Professor at the University of Minnesota (2009-2013), and Associate Professor at The Australian National University (2013-2015).
Professor Lipiński's research and teaching interests are in thermofluids and reaction engineering, with applications in energy technology. His basic research expertise is in transport phenomena, in particular radiative transfer, and multiphase reactive flows. The key applications are solar thermal production of power, fuels and materials, carbon dioxide and water separations, and chemical aerospace propulsion. He has published over 170 articles in refereed journals and conference proceedings, and contributed to several books, edited books and e-books.
Professor Lipiński is currently serving on editorial boards of Journal of Quantitative Spectroscopy and Radiative Transfer, Computational Thermal Sciences, and Solar Energy. Professor Lipiński 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 the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, the Optical Society of America, and several other professional societies. Professor Lipiński advocates for free software in engineering research and education.
Professor 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 ANU College of Science and Engineering Outstanding Professor Award from the University of Minnesota (2010), the Elsevier/JQSRT Raymond Viskanta Award in Radiative Transfer (2013), the Future Fellowship by the Australian Research Council (2014), and the Yellot Award by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (2020). He is Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (2021).
