    • B.S. from University of Tehran, Iran (Chemical Engineering, 1970)
    • M.S. from University of Colorado (Chemical Engineering, 1973)
    • Ph.D. from Illinois Institute of Technology (Chem. Engineering, 1978)


    Professor Aderangi brings more than 15 years of industrial and teaching experience encompassing a variety of chemical engineering and environmental engineering areas, and equipment design. Currently his research focuses on interfacial mass transfer and rheological properties.

    Previously, Professor Aderangi served as project engineer at Pacific Technologies in Lisle, Illinois, providing consulting services to chemical industries in such areas as piping analysis, heat transfer, and process equipment design and equipment selection.

    In addition to teaching chemical engineering theoretical and lab courses, Professor Aderangi has supervised the following projects:

    • Design and construction of a plug flow reactor for a homogeneous biological reaction.
    • Design and construction of a batch polymer reaction system to study the kinetics of an aqueous polymer solution.
    • Modeling of emissions from fiber glass insulation and experimental testing of these materials at high temperatures (600°).
    • Design and construction of a drag reduction testing unit with fully computerized data acquisition and control.
