Biography

Dr. Hongbin (Bill) Ma is a Professor in the Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering, and the director of the Center of Thermal Management in the College of Engineering at the University of Missouri (MU). He received his Ph.D. in 1995 from Texas A&M University. Since he joined MU in 1999, he has conducted active research in the fields of phase-change heat transfer, heat pipes, ejector refrigeration, and thermal management.  His research has been supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Intel Corp., Dell, Outokumpu, Foxconn, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Northrop Grumman, the Office of Naval Research (ONR), the Leonard Wood Institute, Rockwell Automation, Gore-Tex, the Department of Education, the MU Research Board and the University Research Council. His research work has resulted in more than 260 publications including 1 book, 5 book chapters, and over 150 refereed journal papers. His publications are highly cited by his academic peers and are of the highest quality. The contributions he made are not only in scientific fundamental research but also in engineering applications. His research efforts led to the establishments of both companies of ThermAvant Technologies (TAT), where he is cofounder and president, and ThermAvant International (TAI), where he is cofounder and CEO, to further develop and commercialize his research results. While TAT has become the only company in world to manufacture and sell high performance oscillating heat pipe (OHP) cooling devices and led to earning the 2018 100 R&D Award, TAI’s drink-now technology has resulted in the development of temperature-controlled coffee mugs known as Burnout and Lexo Tumblers which can cool down hot beverages to the perfect drinking temperature instantly and retain this temperature for many hours. He is a Fellow of American Society of Mechanical Engineering (ASME), Associate Editors of ASME Journal of Thermal Science and Engineering Application, and International Journal of Heat Transfer Research.
