Marc Assael received his Ph.D. degree from Imperial College in 1980. In 1982, he was elected a Lecturer of heat transfer at the Faculty of Chemical Engineering at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, where he established the Thermophysical Properties Laboratory. In 1986, he was elected an Assistant Professor, in 1991 an Associate Professor, and in 2001 a Professor of thermophysical properties at the same faculty. Since 1991, he has served many times as Vice-Chairman and Chairman of the Faculty of Chemical Engineering. In 1998, he was TEPCO Chair Visiting Professor in Keio University, Tokyo, Japan, while during the years 2007–2010, he also held the position of Adjunct Professor in Jiaotong University, Xi‘an, China. He has published more than 240 papers in international journals and conference proceedings, 20 chapters in books and 7 books. In 1996, his book Thermophysical Properties of Fluids: An Introduction to their Prediction (coauthored by J. P. M. Martin and Th. F. Tsolakis) is published by Imperial College Press, in 2010 Fires, Explosions and Toxic Gas Dispersions: Effects Calculation and Risk Analysis (coauthored by K. Kakosimos), and in 2011, Commonly Asked Questions in Thermodynamics (coauthored by A. Goodwin, S. Will and S. Stamatoudis) are published by CRC. He acts as a referee for most journals in the area of thermophysical properties, while he serves also as a Member of the Editorial Board of the scientific journals: International Journal of Thermophysics (Kluwer Academic Publishers, Plenum Press), High Temperatures High Pressures (Pion, UK), IChemE Transactions Part D: Education for Chemical Engineers (IChemE, UK), International Review of Chemical Engineering - Rapid Communications (Praise Worthy Prize, IT). He serves as a national delegate in many committees in the European Union, as well as in many international scientific organizations. http://tranp.cheng.auth.gr/.
