Research Overview

Dr. Hajesfandiari has presented small scale fluid mechanics based on the consistent couple stress theory and developed a numerical method based on that to analyze a range of physical problems. These developments can be considered as a cornerstone to model flows that involve small scales, such as microfluids. For the last two years, she applied her interdisciplinary expertise in the areas of computational science, engineering mechanics, and applied math, to develop and analyze models and numerical solvers of small scale fluid and solid mechanics and multiphysics problems. Boundary element analysis of size-dependent piezoelectricity, thermoelasticity, and creeping flow, and finite Element analysis of micro and nanobeam structures are parts of her recent works. Throughout her research, Dr. Hajesfandiari attempts to use computational methods to bridge the fields of biology, biomedicine and engineering, so that knowledge gained can be applied directly to real-life applications.
