Arden L. Moore

Assistant Professor
Mechanical & Industrial Engineering
Louisiana Tech University
United States of America


Dr. Moore graduated with his B. S. in mechanical engineering from Louisiana Tech University in 2001, followed by his Master’s and Ph. D. degrees in mechanical engineering from the University of Texas at Austin in 2007 and 2010, respectively. During his time in graduate school he worked in the fields of thermoelectric nanostructures, nanoscale energy transport physics, and advanced thermal conductivity characterization of supported and suspended graphene while publishing in such journals as Nano Letters, Applied Physics Letters, Journal of Heat Transfer, Physical Review B, and Science. As a Thermal Advisory Engineer for IBM’s Systems & Technology Group from 2011 to 2013 he designed and developed electronics thermal management solutions from the die level up to full server systems. Dr. Moore joined the mechanical engineering faculty at Louisiana Tech in September of 2013. He holds a joint appointment with the Institute for Micromanufacturing (IfM) where he works on advanced materials and devices for energy applications with an emphasis on nanoscale thermal energy transport. His graduate school focus and industry experience feed directly into his engineering education efforts at Louisiana Tech where he teaches several courses in the thermal/fluids area including ENGR 222 (Thermodynamics I), MEMT 313 (Elementary Fluid Mechanics), and MEEN 353 (Heat Transfer).

Research Interest

Dr. Moore’s work focuses on studying and engineering how energy moves through materials and devices at the macro-, micro-, and nanoscale. Applications include energy scavenging, energy production, sustainable alternative materials, chemical and environmental sensing, advanced manufacturing, and thermal management for everything from electronic devices to large industrial processes. This work encompasses experimental studies as well as numerical modeling efforts, often working in tandem to provide the most complete picture possible of the processes at work within the system or material under study. Potential collaborative areas include characterization of novel materials or structures, in-depth analysis of manufacturing processes, coordinated experimental/numerical modeling efforts, solutions to pressing thermal management issues, and many others.
