Pirouz Kavehpour, a professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering at the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering, has been elected a fellow of the American Physical Society.

The society’s fellowship program recognizes researchers who have made advances in physics through original research and teaching, or significant contributions in the application of physics to science and technology. 

In selecting Kavehpour as one of its 2023 fellows, the nonprofit organization cited his leadership in microfluidics research and modeling, encapsulating a variety of interfacial and small-scale flows in biological and technological contexts.

A member of the UCLA faculty since 2003, Kavehpour directs the Complex Fluids and Interfacial Physics Laboratory. The group conducts research on a broad range of topics, including microfluidics, biofluidics, biofuel cells, cardiovascular flows, complex fluids, interfacial physics, micro-tribology, non-isothermal flows, drug delivery systems and artificial organs. 

Kavehpour also holds a UCLA faculty appointment in the Bioengineering Department, and is a fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
