Curriculum vitae

Marco Lorenzini graduated in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Bologna in 1995. He was awarded a postgraduate grant for a one-year stay in Germany /FH Flensburg), where he designed the lay-out of the laboratory for thermal solar engineering. He started his PhD in 1998 at the University of Pisa, in the Department of Energy Engineering (subject: "Cooling of rows of horizontal cylinders by means of a submerged liquid slot jet"), discussing his thesis in 2001. After some time at the Research Centre of ENEL (in the gas turbine diagnostics department) and a short spell at Von Karman Institute (Belgium) he joined the Faculty of the School of Engineering of Bologna in the Department on Energy Engineering (DIENCA) on a research contract between 2002 and 2006.
In October 2006 he was appointed Assistant Professor at the Second School of Engineering (Forlì and Cesena), where he has been holding courses ever since.
His didactic activity pertains the areas of thermodynamics and heat transfer and of HVAC applications to housholds. His research activity has been initially devoted to the enhancment of heat transfer, especially in the field of power electronics and deals now mainly with heat and fluid flow in microchanels, where he is co-author of several works of experimental, numerical and theoretical nature published on international journals and in the proceedings of international conferences. He has been involved in nationally-funded projects (PRIN 2003, PRIN 2005, PRIN 2007) and european projects (ITN-Marie Curie GasMems 2008) on research activities pertaining to microchannels.
