Tammy ChanMechanical Engineering
Office: ET A216
Tenure-track assistant professor of mechanical engineering with specialization in environmental engineering/air pollution mitigation. Interdisciplinary chemical engineer/process engineer with industry (EPC) experience in designing and writing proposals for chemical process units for Sulfur Recovery (SRU), Tail Gas Treating Unit Technologies (TGTU) and Gas Processing/CO2 Removal Technologies to meet refinery/gas plant environmental emissions targets. Specialties include chemical process simulators (HYSYS, SULSIM, AMSIM, TSWEET, Pro/II, ASPEN, MATLAB) and chemical process studies.
Teaching specialties include Thermodynamics, Computer-Aided Engineering, Numerical Methods, Active Learning Strategies/Techniques.
Research interests include reducing environmental fuel emissions by modeling and control of combustion burners with biofuels, studying bubbling phenomenon for H2S degassing and chemical/oil spill cleanup, and air pollution analysis/mitigation. Strong interest in chemical process safety, risk assessment/burn down/mitigation, HAZOP facilitation, safety inspection, and other regulatory activities for the chemical/petroleum/natural gas/energy industries.
