Jason Dahl Promoted to Associate Professor

Congratulations to Jason Dahl, who has been promoted to associate professor.  Faculty members Aaron Bradshaw (Civil and Environmental Engineering) and Tao Wei (Electrical, Computer and Biomedical Engineering) were also promoted.

“I am really excited about being promoted to associate professor and honored to be recognized for promotion by the external academic community and my colleagues at URI,” said Dahl.

In the coming years, Dahl looks forward to influencing positive changes to research and curriculum within the ocean engineering department at URI.

“My goal for the near future is to establish URI as a research center for ocean system simulation and control, which will help increase the research impact of our ocean engineering graduate program, particularly in the field of real time computational fluid dynamic simulation, coupled with physical measurements,” stated Dahl.  “Additionally, I would like to assist in implementing significant curriculum changes to the ocean engineering graduate and undergraduate programs, and help new, younger faculty integrate into a modernized engineering curriculum that is focused on design engineering and hands-on experiential learning.”

Dahl received his doctorate in ocean engineering from MIT in 2008 and his bachelor’s degree in naval architecture and marine engineering from Webb Institute in 2002.
