Dr. Renken is an Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM). He received his B.S. (1983), M.S. (1985) and Ph.D. (1987) from The University of Illinois at Chicago. He has published and presented over 40 papers on heat and mass transfer, aerosol science, radon entry dynamics, indoor air pollution control, and engineering education. He is the co-recipient of a 1992-96 NSF ILI Grant and is the recipient of the 1996 UWM College of Engineering and Applied Science Faculty Outstanding Research Award, the 1994 SAE Ralph R. Teetor Educational Award as well as the 1993 ASEE Dow Outstanding Young Faculty Award. His 1995 ASEE Annual Conference paper was selected as a best paper of session. Professor Renken is a member of ASEE, ASME, AARST, AIAA, ASHRAE, CRCPD, SAE, Sigma Xi, and Tau Beta Pi. He was recently selected for inclusion in the 1998-1999 Who's Who in Science and Engineering.
