Marco Lorenzini joined the Faculty of Engineering in 2006 and since 2014 is associate professor. His research activity focussed on fundamental transport phenomena and energy optimization. He investigated through experimental, numerical and theoretical analyses the heat transfer and fluid flow within microchannels in the presence of micro-effects and scale effects, and carried out first and second-law optimizations for microchannels with smooth corners in the presence of viscous dissipation. His current interests, while still concerning viscous flows in micro-geometries, have also moved towards the analysis of transient and cyclic industrial processes involving heat transfer and their optimization. He has authored or co-authored around one hundred works, several on international journals and collaborated with several international research groups.
