Thursday, June 25, 2015, 10:00am, FH103 Compton Lounge
Join Washkewicz College of Engineering Thursday, June 25, 2015, as we welcome Dr. Shahin Navardi. He will lecture on "Hydrostatic Pressure Law and its Applications. The Lecture begins at 10:00 a.m. and will be held in FH103 Compton Lounge. This lecture is open to the University Community. Students are encouraged to attend.
Dr. Navardi received his PhD in 2010 from the Mechanical Engineering Department at Texas Tech University. Prior to that he earned both his MSc (2006) and BSc (2003) in Mechanical Engineering in the field of thermal-fluid from Amirkabir University and Toosi University of Technology in Tehran. As an instructor, he has taught various engineering courses including Fluid Mechanics, Upper level Calculus, Statics, and Thermodynamics in different universities. He is the recipient of several awards and honors including the "Best Lecturer" award in 2013.
Dr. Navardi’s research interests are fluid mechanics, transport phenomena, and hydrodynamics of active matter. He utilizes theory and numerical methods to solve state-of-the-art problems at the intersection of engineering, physics, and biology. During his doctoral research (2008-2010) at Texas Tech University, he developed different semi-analytical and numerical techniques for effective simulation of suspension in fluid. In his subsequent post-doctoral study (2011-2013) at the University of Florida, he developed several numerical algorithms to simulate fracture dissolution explaining acid fracturing and cave formation. In 2013, he returned to Texas Tech University to serve as a research associate and lecturer, where he received the "Best Lecturer" award. In Fall 2014-Spring 2015 semesters,
Dr. Navardi worked in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department at Princeton University as a visiting postdoctoral research associate working on analytical solutions for Stokesian dynamics of hot particles.
