Prof. Dr. Michael Ohadi

Dr. Ohadi is a Center for Environmental Energy Engineering (CEEE) founding faculty member and founder of the Advanced Heat Exchangers and Electronics Cooling Consortium in University of Maryland, USA. He is internationally recognized for his research in heat and mass transfer and smart energy systems. He is the inventor/co-inventor of eight issued U.S. patents and has published more than 150 refereed technical publications. Dr. Ohadi has actively participated in promoting the support for fostering technological innovation and entrepreneurship. In 2002 he was featured in Washington Post for his efforts involving innovation and technology transfer. From 2003 to 2010 he was on leave assignment to the Petroleum Institute (Abu Dhabi) where served as Director of Mechanical Engineering (2003-2006) and Provost and Acting President (2006 to 2010). He is a fellow member of both ASME and ASHRAE and has won numerous awards from both societies.
