Shima Abadi, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor

Dr. Abadi obtained her Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Michigan in 2013, and a dual M.S. in Applied Mathematics and in Mechanical Engineering in 2010. She held a dual appointment as a Postdoctoral Research Scientist at Columbia University and as a Visiting Scientist at the University of Washington, School of Oceanography from 2013 to 2015. Her research primarily focuses on acoustical oceanography as it relates to wave propagation and energy interaction with the ocean bottom. Her interests range from underwater acoustics and array signal processing algorithms to assessing the impact of seismic activities on marine mammals, improving the resolution of acoustic images, and locating sound sources in ocean.
