Short Bio
Jami J. Shah is an Emeritus Professor of aerospace and mechanical engineering at Arizona State University. Prior to his academic career he worked in manufacturing industry for six years, designing mechanical equipment and chemical machinery. His research areas include design theory and methodology, design education, DfM/DfA, geometric computing, AI and knowledge-based systems and computational metrology. He is the co-author of two US patents, two books and more than 250 peer-reviewed technical papers in professional journals and conferences. He is the founding chief editor of ASME Transaction, the Journal of Computing & Information Science in Engineering (JCISE) which he served in that capacity from 2001-2010. He is currently area editor of Research in Engineering Design. He was elected fellow of ASME in 2001. He is the recipient of numerous awards, including the 2008 ASME Design Automation award, Siemens Engineering Education Excellence Award 2003, Ohio State Outstanding Alumnus Award 2003 and the ASME CIE Lifetime Achievement Award. He served as the head of “The Virtual Corporation," an organization involving more than 100 undergraduates from all disciplines, designing, building and marketing robotic devices for outdoor applications.
