Igal Gluzman

Assistant Professor

Biographical Data

B.Sc. (cum laude) and M.Sc. (summa cum laude), both in Mechanical Engineering, Ben-Gurion University, 2011 and 2013, respectively. PhD in Aerospace Engineering, Technion 2017. Postdoctoral Fellow, Johns Hopkins University, 2018-2020. Postdoctoral Research Associate, University of Notre Dame, 2020-2022. With the Technion since 2022.

Main areas of research

Fluid mechanics research, combines interdisciplinary approaches from dynamical systems, signal processing, computer vision tools, and estimation theory. Current focus: cavitation and bubble dynamics, transitional and turbulent boundary layers, flow separation, flow control (low order system modeling), and non-isothermal multi-phase turbulence.


Positions available:

I am looking for strong undergrad, M.Sc., and Ph.D. students to do exciting research on experimental and theoretical fluid mechanics that combines interdisciplinary approaches from dynamical systems, advanced signal processing, computer vision tools, and estimation theory. Multiple research positions (including undergraduate projects) are available, focusing on the following:
1. Cavitation and bubble dynamics.
2. Transitional and turbulent boundary layers.
