Please Take a look at our research page and our publications to see if you like the research directions. See Team -- Open Positions menu for some specific topics.
Prof Alex Liberzon
Alex has joined the School of Mechanical Engineering in 2006, after the postdoc at the Institute of Hydrodynamics at ETH Zurich and Ph.D. at the Technion (2003).
The research interests are related to experimental fluid dynamics, with the special focus on turbulent flows. More specifically, the major goal is to understand the subtle changes of turbulence structure in the flows with external influences or additives, e.g. stratification, two-phase particle-laden flows, dilute polymers, etc. In addition, Alex is promoting the open source software and open science. Additional research topics outside of small scale turbulence are in the fields of complex (pulsating, unsteady) flows in biology and medicine.
Hadar has graduated with M.Sc. from our lab and after a couple of years of research in the Dead Sea Corporations, she’s back for her Ph.D. on the bio-refinery and macro-algae growth in the open sea project, co-supervised with Dr. Alex Golberg from the Porter School of Environmental Engineering Hadar is a proud awardee of the Boris Mints Institute scholarship.
Marco Boetti joined our laboratory as an early stage researcher (ESR) of the Marie Curie International Training Networks abbreviated COMPLETE. Marco developed direct numerical simulations (DNS) of two different turbulent non-turbulent stratified interfaces and studies entrainment and transport across the TNTI.
