Dr. Matteo Bucci is Associate Professor of Nuclear Science and Engineering at MIT. He has joined the MIT faculty in 2016, where he teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in nuclear reactor engineering and design, and two-phase heat transfer. His thermal-hydraulics group at MIT focuses on two major research axes related to nuclear reactor safety and design: (1) New understanding of heat transfer mechanisms in nuclear reactors, (2) Engineered surfaces and coatings to enhance two-phase heat transfer. His group also develops and uses advanced diagnostics, such as high-speed infrared thermometry, and post-processing algorithms to perform unique heat transfer experiments. Matteo has published over 40 articles in the areas of two-phase flow and heat transfer, and surface engineering technology. For his research work and his teaching, he won several awards, among which the MIT Ruth and Joel Spira Award for Excellence in Teaching (2020), ANS/PAI Outstanding Faculty Award (2018), the UIT-Fluent Award (2006), the European Nuclear Education Network Award (2010), and the 2012 ANS Thermal-Hydraulics Division Best Paper Award (2012). In 2022, Matteo received the inaugural DOE Early Career Award for Nuclear Energy. Matteo is Editor of Applied Thermal Engineering and a consultant for the nuclear industry.

Ali Koşar is a Distinguished Research Professor at Sabanci University. He earned his master’s and doctoral degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He is focusing on the design and development of new generation micro heat sinks with functional surfaces and microfluidic devices including cavitation on chip devices. His research interests constitute a spectrum covering heat and fluid flow in micro/nano scale, condensation, boiling heat transfer, microfluidic systems, and cavitation. He co-authored over 150 research articles in top journals and 80 conference papers in prestigious international conferences. He has also a co-inventor on 7 granted patents and 7 pending patent applications. He received numerous national and international honors, including the µFIP Prominent Researcher Award” in the 2021 micro Flow and Interfacial Phenomena (µFIP) Conference, METU (Middle East Technical University) Prof. Mustafa N. Parlar Foundation Science Award (2021). He is currently leading a large research group consisting of members from various disciplines, graduate students and engineers and to bridge different disciplines (Energy, Nanotechnology, Applied Physics, Bioengineering, Biochemistry, Mechanical Engineering). He has been successful to secure funding for his research activities from a wide variety of national and international resources. He also serves as a reviewer in many prestigious journals and is a Subject Editor in the Applied Thermal Engineering journal. He is the Co-director of Center of Excellence for Functional Surfaces and Interfaces for Nano diagnostics (EFSUN) and a Distinguished Researcher of Sabanci University Nanotechnology and Application Center. He was recently elected as a Member of Turkish Academy of Sciences (TÜBA).

Akio Tomiyama is Professor at Kobe University since 2003. He obtained his PhD from Tokyo Institute of Technology. He was formerly a Researcher at the Energy Research Lab. at Hitachi Ltd. in 1984-1988, a research Associate (1988-1991) and associate professor (1991-2002) and Dean of Faculty of Engineering (2015-2019) at Kobe University. His main research areas are multi-scale CFD for multiphase flows, experiments and modeling of bubble dynamics and gas-liquid two-phase flows. He has received several best paper awards and outstanding achievement awards from Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers, Japanese Society of Multiphase Flows and Japan Atomic Energy Society. He is serving as the editor-in-chief of Multiphase Science and Technology and a member of editorial advisory board of Int. J. Heat and Fluid Flow, and had been an associate editor of Int. J. Multiphase Flow for 16 years. He has also served as the President of Japanese Society for Multiphase Flow and a Governing Board member of Int. Conf. Multiphase Flow.
