Biography

Dr. Dabiri received his Ph.D. in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from University of California, Irvine and was a Postdoctoral Associate at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and then a Research Faculty at the University of Notre Dame before joining Purdue University. He is recipient of AIAA Martin Summerfield Graduate Award in 2008 and Dean's Dissertation award in 2009 and a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and American Physical Society. Dr. Dabiri's research focuses on computational fluid dynamics of multiphase flows including turbulent bubbly flow, cavitation and bubble dynamics, sprays and liquid atomization, heat transfer, mixing in supercritical conditions, and solid particles transport in fluids.
