Eva Cosoroaba is a lecturer in the Electrical and Biomedical Engineering Department at the University of Vermont. She received her PhD form the University of Texas at Dallas in December of 2017. Cosoroaba was a research assistant in the Renewable Energy and Vehicular Technology (REVT) Laboratory and a teaching assistant at UTDallas. She received her bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering at the “Politehnica” University in Timisoara, Romania. Her expertise lies in electric machines and their design, optimization algorithms and their applications in engineering, multiphysics simulations, as well as magnetohydrodynamics and their possible use for emission free power generation. Cosoroaba’s current research interest is Engineering Education with focus project based learning.
