John Fillo joined the Watson School as professor and chairman of the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering in August, 1984, from Brookhaven National Laboratory. There he was a mechanical engineer in the Department of Nuclear Energy and worked on engineering research of nuclear fusion reactor designs and other advanced energy systems. Prior to his position at Brookhaven, he taught at the University of Texas-El Paso and the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, in the departments of mechanical engineering. His thesis and dissertation dealt with heat transfer problems in magneto-hydrodynamics.Currently, Fillo is the associate dean for research and external affairs in the Watson School. Fillo's main research interests include thermal fluid analysis, mathematical modeling, heat transfer in electronics and advanced technology.
