Ali Mansoori

Ali MansooriIn thermodynamics, G. Ali Mansoori (c.1943-) is an Iranian-born American engineering scientist noted for being the co-editor of the 1990 book Advances in Thermodynamics, Vol. IV: Finite-Time Thermodynamics and Thermoeconomics, with noted economic thermodynamics chapters such as German theoretical ecologist Bengt Mansson's "Thermodynamics and Economics". [3]

Mansoori has also made contributions to molecular based study of thermodynamics and statistical mechanics of condensed matter, phase transitions and his 2005 book Principles of Nanotechnology, in which some of the first chapters on nanothermodynamics are presented [1].

Education
Mansoori completed his PhD at the University of Oklahoma in 1969 with a dissertation on “A Variational Approach to the Equilibrium Thermodynamic Properties of Simple Liquids and Phase Transitions”. [2] Mansoori did post-doctoral work at Rice University. Mansoori currently is a professor of bioengineering and chemical engineering at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
