Welcome to the Kasbaoui Research Group at Arizona State University. Our research aims at providing cutting-edge science that improves engineering systems relying on multiphase flows, and particle-laden flows specifically. We do this by: (1) formulating original theories and analytical methods that improve our understanding of the processes at play, and (2) developing new numerical tools that enable discoveries in massively parallel simulations.

The group is led by Prof. Mohamed Houssem Kasbaoui in the School for Engineering of Matter and Transport. Prof. Kasbaoui (cass-bah-wee) is an Assistant Professor in mechanical and aerospace engineering. For more details on current and past work, refer to his curriculum vitae.

Group openings :

  • Undergraduate students: outstanding students interested in FURI projects should email Prof. Kasbaoui.
  • Master's students: email Prof. Kasbaoui if you're looking to work on a project for research credits.
  • PhD students: no openings currently.
