Gholam Ali Mansoori (born in 1943), G. Ali Mansoori also known as "GA Mansoori" is an Iranian-American scientist known for his research within energy, nanotechnology and thermodynamics.[1][2][3] He is a professor at the Departments of Bioengineering, Chemical Engineering and also Physics at University of Illinois at Chicago.

Life and education[edit]

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". Mansoori did post-doctoral work at Rice University.[4]

Career[edit]

Mansoori contributed to over 550 publications including ten books,[5] some of which became text-book references in thermodynamics and nanotechnology. The most cited work he has co-authored is Equilibrium thermodynamic properties of the mixture of hard spheres in The Journal of Chemical Physics in 1971[6] with more than 1700 citations.[7]
