Bio/Research

Suzanne Kresta (BSc, UNB (1986), MSc, Leeds (UK, 1987), PhD, McMaster (1992)) serves as co-editor of the Handbook of Industrial Mixing. Her principle research contributions are related to understanding turbulence and mixing in stirred tanks (measurement of turbulence, the use of spatial statistics to define mixing and length scales, nano-particle production, solids suspension, and reactor design) and she has collaborated with colleagues in a wide variety of industries. Many of her papers are both widely cited in the research literature and used for industrial design calculations.

Her teaching interests include visual problem solving tools, the use of story telling and case studies, active learning, and explicit use of cognitive levels with learning objectives. She has served as an Iron Ring Warden since 1999, as a Peer Consultant at the University of Alberta since 2004, and has won a number of national and international awards.
