Hajrudin Pasic

Emeriti Professor
Mechanical Engineering, ESP Lab

Hajrudin Pasic retired in June 2015. Before joining Ohio University in 1984 as a Stocker visiting professor, Pasic worked for the University of Sarajevo and worked at the European Union Research Center in Ispra, Italy, from 1989-1990. Pasic has been active in applied mechanics and in electrostatic precipitation. He has four patents, one of which has a revenue-generating license.

Research Interests: applied math, design, mechanics, pollution control
