Partha P. Mukherjee, PhD, Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Purdue University, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in Engineering.
Dr. Mukherjee is a well-regarded expert on the physics and stochastics of physiochemical transport, as well as chemistry and microstructure interactions with an emphasis in the broad spectrum of energy storage and conversion. He was honored in 2017 as a Scialog Fellow of the Research Corporation of Science Advancement, and received the Dean of Engineering Excellence Award that year from Texas A&M University. Dr. Mukherjee has always tried to keep close the fundamental principles of engineering, mathematics, and sciences, which has led to success in the classroom and the global platform.
After earning a BS from the University of North Bengal and a MS in thermal and fluid sciences from the Indian Institute of Technology, Dr. Mukherjee knew he wanted a PhD and that he wanted to work with fundamental research. After launching a large engineering and software company, Fluent, he traveled to the U.S. to work for the Oak Ridge National Laboratory from 2009 to 2011, and set his eyes on academia.
