Biography

Mohsen Daghooghi joined the University of Houston-Clear Lake faculty with more than 15 years of experience of professional in mechanical engineering. He earned his Ph.D. and Master of Science, both in mechanical engineering, from State University of New York at Buffalo. He also received a Master of Science and Bachelor of Science, both in mechanical engineering, from University of Tehran in Tehran, Iran.

Prior joining to UHCL, Dr. Daghooghi worked as a postdoctoral research associate at Texas A&M Experiment Station and The Research Foundation for The State University of New York, respectively. He also worked as a teaching assistant for the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, also at State University of New York at Buffalo.
