Engineering professor dies of heart attack
Cullen College of Engineering professor Michael Economides died of a heart attack Saturday while on an international flight, according to the Houston Chronicle. He was 64.
Economides had high blood pressure, his wife said to the Chronicle, and died while on a flight from Madrid to Chile. He was considered a local expert in energy, and had been traveling for the past month due to his status as a “highly-demanded expert in the field,” according to the Chronicle.
