Dr. Azar Eslam-Panah teaches core mechanical engineering courses and her specialty is in thermodynamics and fluid mechanics. For her PhD dissertation, she investigated the flow structure and vorticity transport on plunging wings using Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV), time-resolved high-speed imaging system, and dye flow visualization. Her research interests are focused on unsteady aerodynamics of biologically-inspired air and underwater vehicles, wind turbine aerodynamics, vortex structure interactions, and fluid dynamics in human bodies (e.g. cardiovascular, respiratory, etc.).
