  • Biography
    Professor Bejan is the author of 24 books and over 500 peer-reviewed articles. He is ranked among the 100 most highly-cited authors worldwide in engineering (all fields, all countries). He has received 16 honorary doctorates from universities in 11 countries, and numerous other awards. His research areas of interest include thermodynamics, heat transfer, fluid mechanics, convection, porous media, he has achieved fame recently for developing the constructal theory of design in nature. He has written highly-referenced books in all these areas. While we would be honored to have him give a graduate seminar in any of these areas, a seminar on constructal theory and employing it to explain design in nature (biology, geology, thermodynamics, animal locomotion) will be fascinating. Perhaps, we can persuade him to give a couple of seminars: the main one on constructal theory, and another one on thermodynamics. He will be an outstanding speaker on any topic.
