Fluid Mechanics and Transport Faculty

J.A. Jones Professor of Mechanical Engineering
Professor Bejan's research covers a wide range of topics in thermodynamics, heat transfer, fluid mechanics, convection and porous media. More recently, he developed the constructal law of design in nature.
Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering & Materials Science
Our research deals with experimental and theoretical investigations of small-scale physicochemical hydrodynamics, where transport and interfacial phenomena closely interact with each other. By manipulating surface tension actively and passively, e.g. using electric fields and surface structures, we...
Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science
Hydroelastic modeling of deformable structures, transport in thermal and chemical systems, experimental and computational fluid dynamics, nonlinear and complex systems, heat and mass transport in biological systems, stability of fluid motions, machine learning, data mining, econophysics, reduced...
Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science
Analytical, experimental, and computational studies of flow problems arising in biology, medicine, and biotechnology as well as in more traditional mechanical engineering applications.
Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science
Impurity diffusion mechanisms and point defects in silicon and III-V compounds; line defects; precipitation and gettering; kinetic processes of defect evolution; x-ray scattering and electron microscopy; crystal growth in nano-scale
Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science
Theoretical and Experimental studies on concentration gradients arising in ionic fluids and magnetic liquids.
Anderson-Rupp Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science
Ultrasound-targeted gene delivery and activation; Synergistic combination of high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) and immunotherapy for cancer treatment; Innovations in shock wave lithotripsy (SWL) technology; and Mechanics and bioeffects of acoustic cavitation.
