Ashim Datta has been a professor at Cornell University for the past 29 years. His research and teaching program are in applications of transport phenomena to food and biological processes.
Prof. Datta’s group develops mechanistic understanding of process, quality and safety for complex food processes and under various heating modes (such as microwave and infrared), with a goal to improve their safety and quality. This course is developed from scratch synthesizing from the 20+ years of our research treating the food as a porous medium.
Prof. Datta’s teaching program provides the knowledge base in transport processes through two well-coordinated courses. The first course deals with the basics of energy and mass transport in a biological context. The second course on modeling of biomedical processes builds on the first one through class projects involving real-life processes. Prof. Datta also has several funded projects underway in active learning—1) simulation use in education, and 2) how to teach problem solving.
He is also member of the editorial board of Food and Bioproducts Processing, Official Journal of the European Federation of Chemical Engineering: part C.
