Adam Waldemar Skorek (December 24, 1956) is a Canadian University Professor and a Polish Engineer. He was born in Krzczonów, Lublin, Poland. He completed Master of Sciences in Electrical Engineering Program at Białystok Technical University receiving both Master of Sciences and Engineer degree in 1980. His Ph.D. Degree in Electrical Engineering was received at Warsaw University of Technology in 1983. Adam Skorek is a Full Professor and Former Head of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières. He was elected and nominated Director of the UQTR's Research Group on Industrial Electronics (1995-2001). He is a Visiting Professor at the Faculty of Management at the Białystok Technical University. Elected by Professors, he was nominated by the Council of Ministers: Member of the Board of Directors of the University of Quebec at Trois-Rivieres (2008-2011) as well Member of the Board of Governors of the University of Quebec (2011-2014).
His works include supercomputers applications to the electro-thermal applications and complex problems solutions in industrial environment. More specifically he worked on numerical algorithms with the use of parallel computing for the analysis of the thermal problems in electrical, electronics and nanoelectronics devices. He has made contributions to the numerical analysis of electro-thermal phenomena exploring and applying various techniques to the power electronics devices design and industrial process control. This contribution is reflected in the number of papers published and presented in journals and conferences.
