Successful research is a team work. See who’s responsible for the great research in the lab: [Group]
We are always glad to meet new people and would like to hear about your ideas and interests. Perspective undergraduate 2nd-4th year MechE students, M.Sc., Ph.D. and post-docs, don’t hesitate to ask for a tour and a meeting.[Open positions]
We provide consulting services to defence, biotech, semiconductor, health, energy, agricultural and environmental industries. Theory, flow visualization, detailed quantitative measurements using PIV/PTV and complete analysis. Contact Prof. Alex Liberzon for details.
We develop hardware and software for novel measurement techniques, focusing mainly on the small scale structure of turbulence. We design and develop miniature flow sensors based on fluid-structure interactions, three-dimensional particle tracking velocimetry with real-time image processing, and novel flexible structure viscometers.
Hadar has completed her Ph.D. candidacy exam and started her main, important phase of the Ph.D. research. We are looking forward for her contribution to the hydrodynamic effects on algae growth. Hadar is co-supervised by Dr. Alexander Golberg from the Porter School of Environmental and Earth Sciences.
From the Renewable Energy Center page:
Hadar completed a M.Sc. in mechanical engineering in the field of fluid dynamics, at the Tel Aviv University. Since then has worked as a researcher at ICL (Dead Sea Works) R&D. Hadar’s Ph.D. research focuses on the subject of “Off shore biorefinery for the biofuel production” under the supervision of Prof. A. Liberzon and Dr. A. Golberg. The goal of the research is to develop tools and technologies to increase the net energy return of offshore biorefineries for biomass production. Current strategies for food production and renewable energy generation rely heavily on the classic land based agriculture. However, land availability is the limiting factor.
