The University of Maryland has announced the appointment of Dr. Yunho Hwang, research associate professor as associate director of the university’s Center for Environmental Energy Engineering (CEEE). In this position, Dr. Hwang will oversee the day-to-day operations of the center – a world renowned research facility in the study of environmentally responsible, economically feasible distributed energy conversion systems for buildings and transportation.

Dr. Hwang accepts his new responsibilities in addition to his directorship of the center’s Alternative Cooling Technologies and Applications consortium (ACTA) – a research group that focuses on developing comprehensive information for the detailed physics of transport processes, new cost-effective test methods, and innovative components and systems as they pertain in particular to climate control and heat pumping.

Dr. Hwang is an expert in refrigerant alternatives research, particularly involving natural refrigerants. His focus is on developing comprehensive information for the detailed physics of transport processes, new cost-effective test methods, and innovative components and systems. His career spans more than twenty years and he is the author of two books, “Vapor Compression Heat Pumps with Refrigerant Mixtures”, (with Reinhard Radermacher), and “Technical Heat Transfer”, and was a contributing author to “Automotive Air-Conditioning, 2nd Edition”. He has also published over 100 articles and papers in the field, and holds a number of invention records and patents. He is an active member of ASHRAE (Guest editor for HVAC&R Research, Vice Chair of TC10.10), ASME, SAE (Member Service Award) and IIR (Secretary of Commission B2) and US representative for Annex 34 of the IEA.
