About M. A. Rafe Biswas

My research interests include process & system dynamics and control with special interest in fuel cell systems. I enjoy teaching thermal fluid sciences and process control while learning about and incorporating new yet relevant course projects on the side.  My current research project involves thermal fluid modeling of a fuel cell system to optimize the performance given desired operating demands.
