Prof. David Greenblatt


David Greenblatt is a tenured associate professor at the Technion’s Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. He completed his BSc and MSc degrees in Mechanical Engineering at the University of the Witwatersrand and served as a Technical Specialist at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research. He obtained his PhD from Tel Aviv University in 1999 and since has held post-doctoral and teaching positions at NASA Langley Research Center, Technical University of Berlin, Illinois Institute of Technology, University of the Witwatersrand and Tel Aviv University.


His research interests include energy-related flow control applications, unsteady aerodynamics, active separation control, dynamic stall control, wake and vortex management, high-lift and high-alpha aerodynamics, turbo-machinery, jet noise, transition, turbulence and combustion. He has than authored or co-authored more than fifty journal papers and book chapters, more than seventy conference papers and has been awarded numerous patents. He is the founder and director of the Flow Control Laboratory.
