Brief Biography (English)

Dr Bradley Bock is a lecturer at the University of Pretoria‘s Department of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering.
He graduated from the University of Cape Town with an undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering with first class honours and a subsequent Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering which focussed on heat and mass transfer in internal combustion engines. He subsequently spent 2.5 years working at a petrochemical company, completing his engineer-in-training programme and then going to serve as a maintenance engineer of coal-fired boiler plants and water treatment plants. He completed his PhD in 2020 focussed on experimental research into falling film boiling and pool boiling on the outside of copper tubes, focusing on the effect surface roughness and material have on the heat transfer measured, as well as the effect nanostructures have heat transfer through a collaboration with Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Imperial College London.

Dr Bock is largely an experimentalist and is currently continuing his research into falling film boiling and pool boiling and more general thin film heat and mass transfer.
