Short Bio

Simon Brandon earned a BSc in Chemical Engineering from the Technion and a PhD in Chemical Engineering from the University of Minnesota. He has been a faculty member in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology since 1992. He was appointed as Professor in 2009 and as of January 2020 is Dean of the Department.  He spent time as a visiting scholar both at the University of Houston and at the University of Edinburgh. His research interests include continuum and discrete computational analysis of transport phenomena, interfacial effects and phase equilibrium in materials processing and electrochemical systems; science and technology of crystal growth processes; interfacial phenomena. He has published many research papers and has presented his work (in many international and national meetings) in these areas with a special focus on modeling crystal growth processes, wetting phenomena and fuel cell operation.  He has advised and co-advised several PhD and MSc students and has taught a variety of undergraduate and graduate level classes focused mainly on transport phenomena and numerical methods in Chemical Engineering.
