Dr. Tim Persoons

Assistant Professor (Mechanical & Manuf. Eng)
PARSONS BUILDING


Dr. ir. Tim Persoons was appointed Assistant Professor in Engineering in the Department of Mechanical & Manufacturing Engineering at TCD in 2013. He has been a visiting Faculty member in the NSF I/UCRC Cooling Technologies Research Center (CTRC) at Purdue University, West Lafayette IN, USA since 2009, and was Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, KU Leuven, Belgium during 2009-2010. Tim received his Doctorate in Engineering at KU Leuven in 2006 and his MSc in Mechanical Engineering at KU Leuven in 1999. He was awarded an Irish Research Council (IRC) Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2008, an IRC/Marie Curie INSPIRE International Mobility Fellowship in 2010, and Senior Research Fellowship in TCD in 2012. Tim was co-recipient of the 2013 Hartnett-Irvine Award from the International Centre for Heat and Mass Transfer. Dr. Persoons' research activities include multi-scale convective heat transfer in electronics thermal management using unsteady flows, active flow control for sustainable energy technologies, and developing experimental thermal fluid measurement techniques. Tim has authored over 100 peer-reviewed journal articles, conference publications, keynote and invited lectures. He is a member of the THERMINIC scientific committee, and he has served in editorial roles for Journal of Electronic Packaging (2009-2010) and IEEE Transactions on Components, Packaging and Manufacturing Technology (Special Topics on Data Center Cooling, 2016-2017). He has co-organized several technical-scientific workshops (e.g., THERMINIC-2009, PowerMEMS-2010) and the Workshops on Thermal Management in Telecom Systems and Data Centers (2010, 2012, 2015) in collaboration with CTRC.

Current research activities include multi-scale convective heat transfer in electronics thermal management systems using unsteady flows, active flow control for sustainable energy devices, and developing experimental thermo-fluid measurement techniques. My research has a strong experimental focus involving high spatial and temporal resolution measurements of flow, temperature and heat transfer quantities using advanced experimental techniques (e.g., particle image velocimetry, infrared thermography, constant temperature anemometry), and applying these methods to advance the understanding of physical thermo-fluids phenomena in engineering applications, promoting the sustainable use of energy in devices and systems.
