Dr. Aaron P. Wemhoff is assistant professor of Mechanical Engineering and director of the Multiscale System Analysis Laboratory.
Prior to joining Villanova University, Dr. Wemhoff spent three years as a staff engineer at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Today, he teaches courses in the areas of thermodynamics, heat transfer and fluid mechanics at the undergraduate and graduate levels. He also directs the Multiscale System Analysis Laboratory, where he pursues research in the areas of computational heat transfer and microscale heat transfer. Recent projects have involved nanoscale energy conversion and storage applications, development of new methods in computational heat and mass transfer, and energy conservation in HVAC systems using advanced control schemes.
Dr. Wemhoff currently serves on the board of directors for the Philadelphia section of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and on the ASME K-20 Committee for Computational Heat Transfer. He is also a member of the editorial board for the International Journal of Transport Phenomena.
Dr. Wemhoff earned his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Virginia and his Master of Science and PhD in Mechanical Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley.
