Shou-Shing Hsieh received his B.S. degree from Tatung Institute of Technology, Taipei, Taiwan, in 1973, the M.S. degree from the National Taiwan University in 1978, and the Ph.D. degree from the Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio, USA, in 1983. From 1983 to 1984, he was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Mechanical Engineering Department, Ohio State University. Dr. Hsieh has been on the mechanical engineering faculty of National Sun Yat-Sen University, Kaohsiung, Taiwan, since 1984, where he was promoted to a Full Professor in 1989. He also served as the Chairman of the Mechanical Engineering Department from 1990 to 1996, as the Dean of Engineering from 1996 to 2002, and as the Director of Energy Research Center during 1987–1990. Now, he is a Sun Yat-Sen Chair Professor of mechanical and electromechanical engineering, and National Chair of the Ministry of Education, Taiwan. He is a Fellow of ASME, CSME, and STAM. He has made lasting (continued) research contributions on enhancement of heat transfer, separated flow phenomena over roughened surfaces, high-performance heat exchangers with strip-type inserts, 3D natural convection in enclosures, turbine blade internal cooling (both convective and impingement cooling), and boiling heat transfer on enhanced tubes. He has more than 120 technical articles published; among them, 84 are peer-refereed journal papers. He also holds three patents regarding a measurement device for lubricant oil concentration in vapor compression refrigeration systems, a new enhanced tube design, and fuel cell fabrications. He is now serving on several editorial boards of international journals as a Technical Editor or Regional Editor, which include the Journal of Mechanics, Taiwan; International Journal of Applied Thermodynamics; International Journal of Transport Phenomena; Journal of Thermodynamics.
