Anthony D. Rosato, PhD, is a professor in the department of mechanical and industrial engineering at New Jersey Institute of Technology. His current research interests are in the broad field of particle technology, with an emphasis on computational modeling, including discrete element and Monte Carlo simulations.
Rosato received a Fulbright Senior Research Award in 2010 to study the dynamic behavior of systems composed of particles at the University of Salerno in Fisciano, Italy. He will start the four-month program in May 2011.
In 1999, Rosato founded the Granular Science Laboratory (GSL) to conduct basic research aimed at describing and predicting the behavior of systems comprised of solids and fluids. The laboratory also aims to educate undergraduate and graduate students by providing research opportunities.
Rosato previously served as associate chair for graduate studies in the department of mechanical engineering from 2001-2003 and as a visiting scholar at Stanford University's department of mechanical engineering in fall 2003.
Recent publications include "General Features of Granular Couette Flow and Intruder Dynamics", Journal of Condensed Matter Physics; "Analysis of Instantaneous Dynamic States of Vibrated Granular Materials,” Mechanics Research Communications 31 , 525-544, 2004; and “An Overview of Vibration-Induced Size Segregation of Granular Materials,” Chemical Engineering Science 57, 265-275, 2002.
Rosato received his PhD from Carnegie Mellon University, MS degrees from Carnegie Mellon University and Northwestern University, and a BE from the Pratt Institute.
