Clarkson Dean of Engineering Speaks in Holland

Goodarz Ahmadi, dean of Clarkson University's Wallace H. Coulter School of Engineering, gave two invited talks this past fall at the Marie Curie Workshop on Flow and Transport in Industrial Porous Media at Utrecht University in Holland.

In his first talk, he presented an overview of single and multiphase flows through industrial and geological porous media. His second talk was on flow through textile and fabrics. The workshop was part of the program supported by the European Atelier for Engineering and Computational Sciences and was supported by the European Union Marie Curie Conferences and Training Courses.

Ahmadi is internationally known for his numerous engineering and scientific research contributions and has authored two books and over 400 technical publications in archival journals. He also has made more than 500 presentations at national and international technical meetings and has given more than 100 invited talks and short courses at other institutions.

His research interests include multiphase and granular flows, particle and fiber adhesion and removal, aerosols, and turbulence modeling. He holds a bachelor's degree in civil engineering from Tehran University in Iran, a master's degree in civil engineering from Purdue University, and a doctoral degree in mechanical engineering from Purdue. Prior to his tenure at Clarkson, he held numerous positions in Canada and Europe. Earlier he served as dean of engineering at Shriaz University in Iran.

Clarkson University crosses the boundaries of disciplines, nations and cultures in order for discovery, engineering innovation and enterprise to come together. As a result, faculty and graduates grasp the full impact of their calling, direct their research to the world's pressing issues and lead with confidence and distinction. One in seven alumni is already a CEO or other senior executive. Located in Potsdam, N.Y., just outside the six-million-acre Adirondack Park, Clarkson is home to 3,000 students preparing for rewarding careers through 50 rigorous programs of study in engineering, business, arts, science, and health sciences, as well as unparalleled outdoor recreation and life experiences beyond the classroom.
