Elizabeth Mickaily-Huber

Adjunct Professor

Part-Time Faculty
Harney Science Center 122E


Although Professor Elizabeth Mickaily-Huber's degrees are in chemical engineering, her specialty is in computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Over the years, besides using CFD to solve real-world problems, she has taught engineering, environmental science, and mathematics at the University of San Francisco, San Francisco State University, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology at Lausanne (Switzerland), and CSU Los Angeles.
