Meet Allen Hersal

Avid golfer whose goal is to improve engineering education.

B.S.  Missouri University of Science and Tech; Ph.D. Yale University

I have been a professor in the chemical engineering department at Trine University since 2003. Starting in June,  I became the Vice President of Academic Affairs (provost).  Before that I worked for the PQ Corporation, Koch Industries and Kellogg Brown and Root as a process chemist and engineer.

Currently, I teach heat and mass transfer, kinetics and energy balances.  I am completing the fifth edition of a textbook called, “Transport Processes and Separation Process Principles”. I was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada and I am an avid sports fan.  In my spare time, I enjoy playing golf, working in the yard, and spending time with my wife, Tricia, and three sons, AJ, Jonathan, and Nicholas.
