Virtual Conference: November 1 – 5, 2021
Scott M. Thompson is a Steve Hsu Keystone Associate Professor in the Alan Levin Department of Mechanical & Nuclear Engineering in the Carl R. Ice College of Engineering at Kansas State University (KSU). He received both his B.S. and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Missouri (MU) in 2008 and 2012, respectively. Dr. Thompson’s research focuses on modeling the metals additive manufacturing (AM) process and in characterizing such parts (microstructure, properties, residual stress) before/after nuclear environmental exposure. He also performs research on heat exchanger design, heat pipes, heat transfer, energy harvesting, passive flow control, and more. His research efforts have led to 50+ published/peer-reviewed journal articles, 2 book chapters, and 80+ conference proceedings and presentations. He has helped secure and lead several externally-funded research projects (>$ 3 Mil) from agencies such as the DoD, DoE, DARPA, NSF, and NASA. Thompson is a senior member of the AIAA and ASME. He continues to co-organize the annual ASME IMECE Symposium on AM and is currently the Chair of ASME’s K13 Committee on Heat Transfer in Multiphase Systems.
