Arshad Chowdhury

About

Dr. Muhammad Arshad Zahangir Chowdhury joined the Mechanical, Aerospace, and Nuclear Engineering department at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute as a Lecturer in Summer 2023. His Ph.D.  dissertation focused on Machine Learning for Gas Phase Speciation and his research at Argonne National Laboratory at the Data Science and Learning Division focused on research on automated intelligent experimentation. His research appeared in ACS Sensors, Journal of Synchrotron Radiation, Journal of Infrared, Millimeter, and Terahertz Waves, and Applied Physics B. Presently, Dr. Chowdhury is working towards developing scientific machine learning based computational tools for gas phase speciation, remote sensing, intelligent climate management, and design optimization. During his graduate studies, Dr. Chowdhury received the Bimal K. Malaviya Graduate Teaching Assistant Award, and a university fellowship from Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis.   Dr. Chowdhury’s current research interests include intelligent automated environmental monitoring, climate change management and mitigation, scientific and applied machine learning, design optimization, energy, and sustainability. Dr. Chowdhury’s current teaching interests include Elements of Mechanical Design, Machine Learning for Engineering, Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, and Thermal and Fluids Engineering Laboratory.
