ד"ר מקסים מזריצ'ר

I am a Senior Lecturer at Department of Mechanical Engineering of Shamoon College of Engineering. I am currently on unpaid leave at SCE and I am working at Princeton University, USA. My research interests are devoted to a fundamental study of basic and applied problems in the fields of energy, fluids, transport phenomena and nanoparticle technology. I have published 21 peer-reviewed journal papers, prepared 3 journal papers which are currently under review and now I am working on 1 additional paper manuscript. Moreover, I have authored 1 scientific book, 2 book chapters, 32 conference papers, 4 papers in refereed conference volumes. I also have 6 patent-pending applications. In my research, I have invented a new method of liquid atomization capable of producing nanodroplet mists of complex liquids and liquids with high viscosity, and the method and its applications are very promising for the science and technology
