Dr. Ortega joined Villanova University’s Mechanical Engineering department in 2006 and founded the Laboratory for Advanced Thermal and Fluid Systems that same year. In 2011 he became site director of Villanova’s Center for Energy Smart Electronic Systems (ES2), which was launched with four other universities as a National Science Foundation Industry/ University Cooperative Research Center.

An internationally recognized researcher in the areas of thermal management of data centers and electronic systems, convective and conjugate heat transfer in complex flows, experimental measurements in the thermal sciences, and thermal management in energy systems, Dr. Ortega has taught heat transfer, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and thermal-fluid system design, and has served as a frequent professional short course lecturer in the areas of electronics cooling and experimental measurements.
