Before Joining Stevens in 2013, Dr. Dehghani was the AD for Engineering, and a member of the Executive Council of the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory (APL). APL is $1.6B, 6000 person DoD systems engineering laboratory with core competency in many complex defense systems. Dr. Dehghani was also a professor of Mechanical Engineering at Johns Hopkins University and the Founding Director of the JHU Systems Institute (SI). In his JHU role as the Founding Director of the JHU SI, Dr. Dehghani was responsible for the research, educational and applications of the JHU-wide Systems Institute. Since its conceptual beginning in 2010, the Institute has established collaborative research and application programs with many external organizations including DoD, NIH, NSF, DHS, DHHS, as well as internal Divisions of Hopkins including Johns Hopkins Medicine, Bloomberg School of Public Health, Whiting School of Engineering and the Applied Physics Laboratory. Prior to joining the Johns Hopkins University in 2008, Mo served as the New Technologies Engineering Division (NTED) Leader at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). LLNL is a $1.8B, 7000 employee multidisciplinary applied-science and engineering national security laboratory with programs in advanced defense technologies, energy, environment, biosciences, and basic sciences. During his tenure at LLNL, Dr. Dehghani helped develop technologies and expand many areas of engineering including biomedical engineering, nuclear engineering, process systems and all traditional engineering disciplines of mechanical, electronics, fluidics and multi-scale modeling and simulations. From 1987 until 1996, Dr. Dehghani served tenured member of faculty of Mechanical Engineering at Ohio University. Dr. Dehghani Holds a B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering. He is married to Mina (Saffari) Dehghani, a pharmacist; they have one son, Devon and live in Hoboken, NJ. Dr. Dehghani is an active pilot with instrument and multi-engine ratings.
