Associate Professor, School for Engineering of Matter, Transport and Energy
Associate Professor Heather N. Emady received her doctorate in chemical engineering from Purdue University, where she identified granule formation mechanisms from droplet impact and penetration into powder beds. She then did postdoctoral work in P&G’s Microstructured Fluids group, as well as in Rutgers University’s Catalyst Manufacturing Science and Engineering Consortium (CMSEC) and Engineering Research Center for Structured Organic Particulate Systems (ERC-SOPS), before joining the School for Engineering of Matter, Transport and Energy in January 2015.
Emady’s research encompasses particulate process and product design. Her current research efforts include particle wettability, granule formation, granular heat transfer in rotary drums, solid projectile impacts on granular media, and discrete element method simulations.
