John R. Lloyd is a University Distinguished Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Michigan State University. He is a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, and he has received the Melville Medal and the Heat Transfer Memorial Award from ASME International. He currently serves as Governor of ASME International. He was awarded the degree Doctor of Technical Science Honorus Causa by the Russian Academy of Sciences, and was recently elected as a member of the European Academy of Sciences. He is an editor of several international technical journals. He has received teaching awards including the SAE Ralph R. Teetor Educational Award. His current areas of research interest include the development of MEMS sensors for application to bio and other engineering systems. Hi research program includes the emerging areas of energy transport at the micro and nano length scales, which will have application in developing such diverse areas as thermal energy transport in Agrifood systems, thermoelectric devices, fuel cells, and energy efficiency in phase change heat transport in structured, micro and nano thin film coatings on particles such as seeds and agri-elements.
