Wojciech Lipiński is a Professor at the Cyprus Institute. He obtained his Master of Science degree in Environmental Engineering from Warsaw University of Technology (2000), doctorate in Mechanical and Process Engineering from ETH Zurich (2004), and habilitation in Energy Technology from ETH Zurich (2009). He previously held academic positions at ETH Zurich (2004–2009), the University of Minnesota (2009–2013), and the Australian National University (2013–2021).

Prof. Lipiński’s research interests encompass optical, thermal and chemical engineering sciences, with applications in solar energy technology. His basic research focuses on advances in transport and reactive flow phenomena, in particular for problems with significant radiative transfer effects. Prof. Lipiński’s applied research primarily underpins developments in concentrated solar thermal energy for power generation, processing of fuels and materials, and environmental separations.

Prof. Lipiński is the Editor-in-Chief of Thermopedia, and an Associate Editor of Solar Energy and the Journal of Quantitative Spectroscopy and Radiative Transfer. He is involved in the International Centre for Heat and Mass Transfer and several other professional societies. His work has been recognised, among others, with the Elsevier/JQSRT Raymond Viskanta Award (2013) and the ASME Yellot Award (2020). He is Fellow of the ASME (2021).
