I am a Dean's Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Clemson University, where I direct the Complex Fluids and Active Matter Lab. I earned my B.S. degree in Aerospace Engineering, Summa Cum Laude, from Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, in 2006. I continued my education at the State University of New York at Buffalo, receiving an M.S. in Mechanical Engineering in 2009. I then pursued and completed my Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2012. My postdoctoral research was jointly supervised by Michael Shelley at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences and Howard Stone at Princeton University. My research focuses on fluid mechanics, transport phenomena, and the hydrodynamics of soft and active matter, employing a combination of theoretical analysis, numerical simulation, and experimental measurment to address significant challenges at the nexus of engineering, physics, and biology. I am available via email at hmasoud[at]clemson[dot]edu.
