Biography
Alfred L. Crosbie, Curators Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Missouri University of Science and Technology (S&T), received his B.S from the University of Oklahoma in 1964, his M.S. in 1966, and his Ph.D. in 1969 from Purdue University, all in Mechanical Engineering. He joined the faculty of Missouri S&T in 1968, where he was promoted to Professor in 1975. He has been an active researcher in the field of radiative heat transfer since 1964. His current research interests include multidimensional radiative heat transfer, multiple scattering, numerical heat transfer, and laser interaction. Dr. Crosbie has served as a member of the AIAA Thermophysics Technical Committee (1976-78), Technical Program Chairman for the 15th Thermophysics Conference (1980), Editor of two thermophysics volumes in the AIAA Progress in Astronautics and Aeronautics book series (1981), Associate Editor for the AIAA Journal (1981-83), Chairman of the AIAA Thermophysics Technical Committee (1984-86), and Editor-in-Chief of AIAA's Journal of Thermophysics and Heat Transfer (1986-2014). He is a Fellow of AIAA, AAAS, and ASME, recipient of the AIAA Thermophysics Award (1987) and the ASME Heat Transfer Memorial Award (1990), and an Associate Editor for the Journal of Quantitative Spectroscopy and Radiative Transfer (1979-2014). He was a member of the Editorial Advisory Board for Heat Transfer - Recent Contents (1996-2000). He is the author or coauthor of over 80 papers in archival journals.
