Morteza (Mory) Gharib
Hans W. Liepmann Professor of Aeronautics and Medical Engineering; Booth-Kresa Leadership Chair, Center for Autonomous Systems and Technologies; Director, Graduate Aerospace Laboratories; Director, Center for Autonomous Systems and Technologies
Professor Gharib's current research interests in conventional fluid dynamics and aeronautics include
Vortex dynamics, active and passive flow control, nano/micro fluid dynamics, autonomous flight and underwater systems, as well as advanced flow-imaging diagnostics.
His bio-mechanics and medical engineering research activities can be categorized in two areas:
1. fluid dynamics of physiological machines such as the human cardiovascular system and ophthalmology as well as aquatic-breathing/propulsion
2. development of medical devices such as heart valves, cardiovascular and human eye health monitoring and drug delivery systems
