Prof. Roger Kempers, Founder and Director

Prof. Roger Kempers earned BEng & Society and MASc degrees in Mechanical Engineering from McMaster University, Hamilton, Canada (2002 and 2004) and a PhD in Mechanical Engineering at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland in 2010.

Prior to joining the Department of Mechanical Engineering at York University, he was a Distinguished Member of Technical Staff at Nokia (formerly Alcatel-Lucent) where he led the R&D of advanced thermal management technologies for wireless telecommunications hardware. Previously, Dr. Kempers worked as a Research Engineer at Lucent Technologies, Bell Laboratories Ireland, where his activities ranged from fundamental heat transfer research to thermal technology development, licensing, and product integration.

Prof. Kempers is the founding director of the Thermofluids Research Lab (TF-LAB) at York University. His research interests lie primarily in thermal-fluid sciences and are multi-disciplined in nature, geared towards the advancement of heat transport, exchange, and conversion technologies to address industrial thermal energy challenges. He is particularly interested in the two-phase heat transfer, lightweight and additively manufactured heat exchange technologies.
