Andrei G. Fedorov

George W. Woodruff Professorship in Heat Transfer, Combustion and Energy Systems and Professor of Mechanical Engineering

Andrei Fedorov

Professor Fedorov's background is in thermal/fluid sciences, chemical reaction engineering as well as in applied mathematics. His laboratory works at the intersection between mechanical and chemical engineering and solid state physics and analytical chemistry with the focus on portable/ distributed power generation with synergetic CO2 capture; thermal management of high power dissipation devices and electronics cooling; special surfaces and nanostructured interfaces for catalysis, heat and moisture management; and development of novel bioanalytical instrumentation and chemical sensors. Professor Fedorov joined Georgia Tech in 2000 as an Assistant Professor after finishing his postdoctoral work at Purdue University.
