Ryan Anderson

Affiliate Associate Professor


I am an associate professor in chemical and biological engineering at Montana State University with an affiliate appointment in Mining at the University of British Columbia. I received my Ph.D. in Chemical and Biological Engineering from UBC in 2012. Prior to that, I earned degrees in Chemical Engineering (B.S.) and History (B.A.) in 2007 at Bucknell University. After UBC, I completed post-doctoral studies at City College of New York. In 2013, I joined the faculty at Montana State University.

My research interests are in porous media and heat transfer with numerical and experimental approaches. Active projects include studying PEM fuel cells with Synchrotron X-ray radiography, heat transfer in porous media with MRI, and models for comminution.

I teach courses at Montana State University including Capstone Design I, Capstone Design II, Unit Operation Labs, and Fluid Mechanics. I am engaged in engineering education research, and am active within AIChE and ASEE.
