Biographical note of the Editor-in-Chief:


 

Minea Alina Adriana was born on 15-th of June, 1971, in Barlad, Romania. In 1994 she finished her academic studies at Technical University Gheorghe Asachi from Iasi, Faculty of Materials Science and Engineering, and in 2000 reached her doctoral degree. The author’s major field of study is heat and mass transfer.

She published over 130 articles (26 are in international peer-reviewed journals) and authored or co-authored 17 books, most of them in heat transfer area. Current research interests are in heat transfer in industrial equipments, based on modifying heat chamber geometry and improving energy consumptions.

Dr. Minea is a member in Eumat international organization, as well as in AGIR national society, International Network of Women in Engineering Sciences (INWES International) and ASME International. She received many awards with one of her patents: “Procedure for Heat transfer efficiency in classical electrical furnaces used for medium temperature heat treatment”. Now she is associate professor at Technical University Gh. Asachi Iasi, one of the greatest universities from Romania.

Her professional activity is based on teaching and research. As a reviewer she participated in peer review for many international journals and conferences, as well as for national grants and study programmes. As a researcher she has 4 national grants awarded as principal investigator and more than 15 as team member.
