About

After 30 years on the faculty at Arizona State and Director of Design Automation Lab, Jami J. Shah returned to his alma mater in 2015, the Ohio State University, as Honda Chair in Engineering Design. In his new position, he is establishing a new research lab in Digital Design & Manufacturing and a graduate program in Product Design Engineering. Prior to his academic career he worked in industry for 6 years, designing mechanical equipment and chemical machinery. His research areas include: CAD/FEA, Structural design, Design theory, design education, DfM/DfA, Design Informatics, CMM metrology and GD&T/Precision Engineering.

He is the co-author of 2 US patents, 2 books, and 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) of which he was Chief Editor from 2001-2010. He is currently Area Editor of Research in Engineering Design and Co-Chief Editor of Journal of Computational Design & Engineering. He was elected Fellow of ASME in 2001.

Ph.D.-  Mechanical Eng., Ohio State, 1984.
