Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering
Mohammad “Mosi” obtained his B.S in mechanical engineering from the University of Manitoba, Canada, in 2012 and his PhD in theoretical and applied mechanics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2020. He worked on his M.S. and Ph.D. under the supervision of Professor Narayana R. Aluru. Currently, Mosi is fulfilling his postdoctoral associate position with Professor Menachem Elimelech in the Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering at Yale University. Using theoretical, statistical, and computational tools, Mosi studies different phenomena across different scales from quantum to continuum. He applies this knowledge to guide the design and development of advanced materials for different applications particularly at the water-energy-carbon nexus.
Outside of research, Mosi enjoys traveling to scenic destinations. He loves to appreciate nature with friends and family by taking frequent hiking trips, astronomy, and cave tours. If given the remote, he will almost always choose a historical documentary and prides himself in never missing a game during the FIFA World Cup.
