About The Event
Farrukh Alvi, Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Programs at FAMU-FSU College of Engineering will talk about the research going on in Tallahassee supporting the Aerospace and Aviation fields. Over the last decade Mr. Alvi has attracted well over $20 million in external funding for research, development and STEM education. His research has been funded by government agencies, such as the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), NASA, National Science Foundation (NSF), Office of Naval Research (ONR), DARPA, Army Research Office (ARO) and industry, such as Boeing, Northrup Grumman and Danfoss Turbocor, among others.

About Farrukh Alvi:
Farrukh Alvi earned his BS in Nuclear Engineering from UC Berkely and PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Pennsylvania State University. He holds the Don Fuqua Eminent Scholar Chair and is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the Florida A&M University – Florida State University College of Engineering where he also serves as the Associate Dean of Research and Graduate Studies. He is the Founding Director of the Florida Center for Advanced Aero-propulsion (FCAAP), a multi-university, state-wide research, technology and education center he helped establish in 2008. He is the Co-Lead of the FAA Center of Excellence in Commercial Space Transportation (FAA COE CST), a consortium of nine universities established in 2010 by the FAA to address the broad range of issues in the emerging commercial space transportation sector.
Recently his research has focused on developing and refining active flow and noise control technologies to reduce noise from and increase the efficiency of high speed aircraft, automobiles and turbomachinery (compressors, turbines) using advanced actuators, especially micro-fluidic actuators. He holds a number of patents in this area. The development and use of advanced diagnostics, especially non-intrusive optical techniques for fluid flows is also an active area of research. Over the last decade he has attracted well over $20 million in external funding for research, development and STEM education. His research has been funded by government agencies, such as the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), NASA, National Science Foundation (NSF), Office of Naval Research (ONR), DARPA, Army Research Office (ARO) and industry, such as Boeing, Northrup Grumman, Danfoss Turbocor, among others. To date, he has mentored over 50 PhD and MS students, post-doctoral researchers and scientists and has published nearly 200 technical papers, articles and abstracts in his areas of research. He is an Associate Fellow of AIAA (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics) and a Fellow of the ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers).
