Sagnik Mazumdar received his Ph.D. from Purdue University. His undergraduate education is from the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology in Kharagpur, India.
Mazumdar is experienced in both academic and industrial settings. He has taught and developed several graduate and undergraduate courses in areas such as computational fluid dynamics, experimental methods in thermal sciences, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, dynamics and computer-aided design. He has served as an advisory committee member for several graduate level thesis committees.
His research interest is in the application of thermofluid modeling (both computational and experimental) for better understanding of environmental issues and next generation energy systems. His work to date has focused on modeling and analysis of issues in indoor and outdoor environments, energy systems, HVAC-R systems, fluid mechanics and heat transfer.
Over the years, Mazumdar has worked on projects with sponsorship from the Federal Aviation Administration, Boeing Commercial Airplane Group, the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers, the National Institute of Occupational Health and Safety, the Department of Energy's Nuclear Energy University Program, and the Ministry of Non-conventional Energy Sources.
