Doreen D. Edwards, dean of the Inamori School of Engineering at Alfred University, recently announced the promotion to full professor for two faculty members: Jalal Baghdadchi, electrical engineering, and Olivia Graeve, materials science and engineering.

Baghdadchi has three degrees in electrical engineering: a bachelor’s degree from the University of Massachusetts, and a master’s of science and Ph.D. from the North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. He currently concentrates on renewable energy sources and systems, and is researching the adaptive hybrid-energy-source home water heating unit and energy storage systems for intermittent energy resources.

Graeve earned a bachelor’s degree and a doctorate from the University of California-San Diego and Davis, respectively. Her research expertise connects fundamental principles of materials processing with specific engineering needs, with special emphasis on electromagnetic multifunctional materials for sensors and energy applications.
