Dr. Masoud Soroush
Masoud Soroush received his B.S. in (Chemical Engineering, 1985) from Abadan Institute of Technology, Iran, and M.S.E. (Chemical Engineering, 1988), M.S.E. (Electrical Engineering: Systems, 1991), and Ph.D. (Chemical Engineering, 1992) all from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. After one year of postdoctoral research in systems engineering at Michigan, in 1993 he joined Drexel University where he is now a Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering. He was a Visiting Scientist at DuPont Marshall Lab, Philadelphia, 2002-03 and a Visiting Professor at Princeton University in 2008. His current research interests are in polymer reaction engineering, electronic-level modeling of chemical reactions, polymer membranes, process systems engineering, probabilistic modeling and inference, risk assessment, fault detection, and mathematical modeling, analysis and optimization of renewable power generation and storage systems. Masoud is the recipient of an NSF CAREER Award and the O. Hugo Schuck Best Paper Award of the American Automatic Control Council and is a Fellow of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers. He has authored or co-authored more than 170 refereed articles.
