Arindam Banerjee

Department: Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics

Position: Associate Professor

Address: 453 Packard Lab
19 Memorial Drive West
Bethlehem, PA 18015
(610) 758-4099


Areas of Research

  • Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics, and Transport Phenomena
  • Renewable Energy and Fusion
  • Modeling of biological systems

Profile

Prof. Banerjee's interest/expertise lies in multi-scale fluid-dynamics with emphasis on energy- and biological- systems. His research goal is to enhance our limited understanding of fundamental issues related to space and scale interactions in turbulent flows. The current research focus of his research group lies in:

  • Fluid dynamics in extreme environments: understanding hydrodynamics of inertial confinement fusion,
  • Renewable energy applications: River/Tidal and Wave energy harvesting, and,
  • Computational Pulmonary Therapeutics: Pulmonary drug delivery under different mechanical ventilation conditions.

Research support for these efforts comes from the National Science Foundation (NSF Career Award, CyberSEES, GOALI and unsolicited grants), Department of Energy (Stewardship Science Academic Alliance), Los Alamos National Laboratory and Office of Naval Research. Prior to joining Lehigh University, Prof. Banerjee served in a similar rank at the University of Missouri, Rolla (at Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering).
