John Paschkewitz manages the fluid and thermal systems area at PARC. His team has capabilities and experience in experimental and computational fluid dynamics, heat and mass transfer, inkjet design, spray and droplet generation, and colloid science that have been central to the success of multiple projects for Xerox as well as commercial and government clients.
Prior to PARC, he worked on a wide variety of projects including the experimental investigation of enhanced heat transfer techniques for aerospace applications at the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), massively parallel computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations of chemically reacting flows, turbulent drag reduction and droplet-laden flows at both AFRL and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and the modeling, design, and testing of microfluidic chips for biological analysis instruments at Caliper Life Sciences. This breadth of experience allows John to engage with a wide range of prospective client challenges.
John holds a Ph.D. from Stanford University, and an SM and SB from MIT, all in chemical engineering.
