Dr. Masoud joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering-Engineering Mechanics at Michigan Tech in July 2017 after a two-year stint at the University of Nevada, Reno. Prior to UNR, he was a lecturer at Princeton University and a post-doctoral fellow working jointly with Michael Shelley (NAS member) at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences and Howard Stone (NAE and NAS member) at Princeton University. Dr. Masoud leads the Complex Fluids and Active Matter Lab, where he and his team employ the tools of applied mathematics and experiments to fundamentally understand the interaction of fluid flows with dynamically changing boundaries at a wide range of length and time scales. Their goal is to integrate the acquired fundamental understanding with engineering ideas to address outstanding technological and societal problems. Dr. Masoud served as a Topic Editor for the journal Fluids from 2020 to 2021 and was an Associate Editor for the European Journal of Computational Mechanics from 2017 to 2019. He is currently an Editorial Board Member and Associate Editor of the Journal of Engineering Mathematics.
