Pavlos P. Vlachos

Professor of Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering

Dr. Vlachos is a professor in the School of Mechanical Engineering at Purdue. Dr. Vlachos received his Diploma in Mechanical Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens (1995) and his MS (1998) and Ph.D. (2000) in Engineering Science and Mechanics from Virginia Tech. He joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Virginia Tech as assistant professor (2003) and he was promoted to associate (2007), and full professor (2011). In August 2013 he joined the School of Mechanical Engineering at Purdue, and he currently serves as President’s Fellow for Research Development. He is also an associate editor for the International Journal of Multi-Phase Flows. His research focuses on experimental fluid mechanics specializing in flow diagnostics using optical or other non-intrusive methods. He has worked on wakes, boundary layers, aerothermodynamics, and fluid-structure interaction. Currently, his main interests are in biofluids, arterial flows, heart failure, medical imaging, drug delivery; and tissue and tumor micro-environments.

He has been funded for over 90 projects and >$40 million in research. With his students and co-workers, he has authored >130 journal papers and over 280 conference proceedings. He has received several awards including 2005 Dean’s Award of Excellence for Outstanding Assistant Professor; MIT 11th Annual T.F. Ogilvie Lectureship Award for Young Investigator in Ocean Engineering and Fluid Mechanics; 2006 NSF CAREER award; 2007 College of Engineering Faculty Fellow; 2007 and 2010 ASME Fluids Engineering Division Moody Award; 2010 Dean’s Award for Excellence in Research; and the 2009 and 2010 outstanding paper award in fluid mechanics from the journal of Measurement Science and Technology. Several papers have been recognized in journal highlights and covers including the cover for PNAS Dec 2015 issue. In 2010 he was named a Jones Faculty Fellow and in 2012 received the Robert E. Hord professorship in mechanical engineering. In 2015, he became a Purdue University Faculty Fellow.
