Amadeu Sum’s Research

Professor Amadeu Sum’s research focuses on the study of phase transformation with special focus on water and its many phases, including clathrate, ice, and liquid water. His research is diverse, with depth and breadth from the SCIENCE (fundamental) to the ENGINEERING (applied). 

Amadeu Sum teaches the undergraduate course CBEN420: Mathematical Methods in Chemical Engineering.  Students enjoy this elective course as it brings together their chemical engineering knowledge while also teaching them to code in Microsoft Excel and Matlab to solve more complex engineering problems. Dr. Sum received the ASME 2017 Arthur Lubinski Best Paper Award while continuing his hydrates research.
