I am an assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering-Engineering Mechanics at Michigan Tech, where I lead the Complex Fluids and Active Matter Lab. Prior to MTU, I was on the faculty of the University of Nevada, Reno for two years and, before that, I was a lecturer at Princeton University and also a post-doctoral fellow working jointly with Michael Shelley at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences and Howard Stone at Princeton University. I received my B.S. degree (Summa Cum Laude) in Aerospace Engineering from the Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran in 2006. Subsequently, I joined the State University of New York at Buffalo, where I earned my M.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering in 2009. I then moved to the Georgia Institute of Technology and obtained my Ph.D., also in Mechanical Engineering, in 2012. My research interests include fluid mechanics, transport phenomena, and hydrodynamics of soft and active matter. I employ theory and high-performance computing to solve state-of-the-art problems at the intersection of engineering, physics, and biology.‎ I can be reached by e-mail at hmasoud[at]mtu[dot]edu.
