Prof. Sarah Parikh
PhD Graduate - University Faculty
Ph.D. ME 2011. Assistant Professor, Physical Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Division, Engineering and Physics Departments, Foothill College, Los Altos Hills, CA. Sarah’s Ph.D. research was co-advised by Professor Sheri Sheppard, Stanford Mechanical Engineering, and focused on the methodologies for engineering learning and involved much interaction with our undergraduate heat transfer instruction. At Foothill she is teaching a variety of introductory engineering classes ranging from project based classes to laboratory science classes. Sarah also teaches physics courses, with and without calculus. She is currently developing a course on Climate Change that explores the physics of heat transfer and the earth and is co-taught with a Biology instructor covering the effects of temperature on ecosystems.
