About M. A. Rafe Biswas

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