Professor Parisa Arabzadeh Bahri is an instructor, leader, and innovator at Murdoch University and the Harry Butler Institute’s Centre for Water, Energy, and Waste. Her research focusses on industrial modelling and control, a variety of aspects of industrial process design, as well as supply chain management. She brings this depth of knowledge to Centre leadership and to her collaborative research efforts within the CWEW.

Prof Bahri’s accelerated career started with a Bachelors and Masters degree from Amirkabir University, Iran in Chemical Engineering. From there she completed a PhD on operability analysis in chemical manufacturing plants at Sydney University, Australia, where she also completed post-doctoral work and began her academic career as a lecturer. In 1997, she moved to Murdoch University where she progressed from lecturer to full professor in less than 10 years.

Her professional memberships and associations include status as a Fellow of Engineers Australia, presiding as Western Australia’s representative to National Committee on Automation, Control and Instrumentation, and membership in Engineers Australia’s  Centre for Engineering Leadership and Management (WA Chapter). She also currently supervises seven post-graduate students and continues eight years on the Professorial Promotion Committee at Murdoch University
