Farhan was the type of kid who fell asleep playing with his K’Nex and Legos during the wee hours of the night…and then he would resume building whatever he could imagine upon waking up. Naturally, this drive later expressed itself as an interest in the physical sciences and engineering design. Farhan completed a combined BS/MS in Mechanical Engineering at University of Maryland, where he graduated Summa Cum Laude and worked on space power applications for NASA missions. After working as an Acoustics Engineer with the NAVY and serving as an Engineering & Math Instructor, he decided to pursue his doctorate at MIT, specializing in Energy Systems, Computational Engineering, and System Dynamics, Vibrations, & Control.
Farhan has over ten years of classroom and tutoring experience in core STEM subjects, including solid & fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, heat & mass transfer, and mathematics. In the past, he has taught at MIT and University of Maryland, both at the undergraduate and graduate level. He uses an adaptive teaching approach to adjust to a student’s particular learning style and works to make things simple.
In his spare time, Farhan is often doing yoga, lifting weights, or practicing dance and music. He enjoys intellectual discourse in all subject areas and maintains a well-rounded outlook.
