Florencio Sanchez-Silva

Florencio Sanchez-Silva graduated as a Mechanical Engineer from the National Polytechnic Institute of Mexico, Mexico City, in 1974. He possessed M.Sc. in Thermodynamics and Ph.D. in Thermal Engineering from the National Superior School of Mechanics and Aerothermics of Poitiers - France, in l980. He was a post doctorate in two-phase flow dynamics at the University of Pisa, Italy, in 1988-1989 and spent his sabbatical leave at the Texas A&M University in 2000-2001. His major area of study is two-phase flow dynamics and phase change heat transfer. Currently, he is a full professor at the National Polytechnic Institute of Mexico. His research interests are two-phase flow dynamics, heat pipes, energy saving and, development and analysis of thermal energy systems. Up to now, Dr. Sánchez-Silva has 38 refereed journal publications, 250 refereed papers in conference proceedings, 15 technical reports, 2 technical books, 3 chapters in technical books. He has supervised 3 PhD, 44 Master in Science and 31 bachelor thesis on two-phase flow, heat transfer, fluid mechanics, metrology and thermal systems topics. Dr. Sanchez-Silva is a Fellow of the Societé des Ingenieurs et Scientifiques de France, Mexican Section (since l987) and a member of the Mexican Academy of Sciences since 2004.
