2011 Fulbright S&T Fellow

Macedonian Filip Stanković is a 2011 International Fulbright Science & Technology Fellow who is pursuing his Ph.D. in Biological and Agricultural Engineering at Washington State University-Pullman. As a student at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering in Skopje, Macedonia while majoring in thermotechincs and thermoenergetics, Filip became truly passionate about the importance of energy systems to everyday life and their impact on the environment. While he was completing an internship in the Systems Development Department at Bosch Thermotechnology, supported by the East Committee of German Business, he was actively involved in simulation, verification and modeling of systems that utilize gas fired condensing boilers. Following graduation, Filip started working as an assistant designer of HVAC and dedusting systems until he received the opportunity to join one of the more ambitious construction projects currently in that industry. He was responsible for managing, coordinating, and controlling projects for industrial refrigeration, heating, ventilation and air conditioning, as well as the technological equipment in the company’s new meat processing factory with warehouses.

Holding firm to his ambition to enhance my knowledge in thermal sciences, and at the same time devote himself to research with the potential for not only substantial impact but development of his native Macedonia, he applied and was selected for the Fulbright S&T Award. He is part of a very comprehensive graduate program in biomass engineering at Washington State University-Pullman where he researches liquid fuel production from agricultural and forest residues via pyrolysis and hydrotreatment. The products of which is bio-oil, which may be used to produce green gasoline and diesel, and bio-char, which has shown great potential for sequestering carbon dioxide.
