A chemical engineer by training, John Parry earned a PhD in catalysis and reactor design before getting involved with computational fluid dynamics (CFD) at CHAM more than 30 years ago. He joined Flomerics when it opened its doors in 1989. He has coordinated EC-funded projects and managed Knowledge Transfer Programmes and strategic internal projects, as well as overseeing the technical integration of MicReD’s thermal characterization business into Flomerics Group. Flomerics became Mentor Graphics’ Mechanical Analysis Division, which is now a Siemens business.
John Parry’s technical contributions to the discipline of electronics cooling include developing a host of compact thermal models for fans, heat sinks, chip packages and LEDs. He also has expertise in Design of Experiments, optimization, thermal characterization and active power cycling. He has published over 75 technical papers and has 4 patents pending.
Today John Parry is responsible for promoting the Mechanical Analysis Division’s products to the electronics industry, and manages a global team of product specialists. He serves on the JEDEC JC15 Thermal Standards Committee, NAFEMS CFD Working Group, the Harvey Rosten Award for Excellence Selection Committee and on various conference committees. He has given several invited and keynote talks related to CFD, electronics cooling simulation and test. He was the general chair of the SEMI-THERM 21 conference.
