Milo Koretsky received his BS and MS degrees from UC San Diego and his PhD from UC Berkeley, all in chemical engineering. Prior to joining Tufts University in April 2021, he was a faculty member in the Department of Chemical, Biological, and Environmental Engineering at Oregon State University (OSU). Koretsky began his career pursuing canonical chemical engineering research focusing on plasma processes and thin film materials research. In a mid-career transition, he switched to engineering education research where he led the transition of the curriculum in chemical, biological, and environmental engineering to a studio model and led the development of technology based instructional tools such as the Concept Warehouse. He is author of the popular textbook, Engineering and Chemical Thermodynamics.
