Amin Joodaky, PhD
Amin Joodaky received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN. He is currently an Assistant Professor in the School of Packaging, College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, at Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI.
His field of study is related to experimental and analytical 1) mechanics of composite structures and 2) nonlinear dynamics and vibrations. His current research focuses are: 1) characterizing and modeling mechanical properties and dynamic responses of packaging structures such as polymer foams, 2) designing metamaterials for shock absorption in packaging, and 3) capturing and lab-reproducing six-degree-of-freedom (6DOF) vibrations of packages and vehicles during transportation.
Dr. Joodaky is also interested in educational studies such as teaching methods and curricular designs. He received a teaching and learning certificate from the School of Engineering Education at Purdue University.
