Bill D. Cook Assistant Professor of mechanical engineering Hadi Ghasemi is freezing out the competition at the NASA iTech Cycle 2. Inspired by North American wood frogs, Ghasemi invented a new anti-icing material that can withstand critically low temperatures, earning him a spot as a Top Ten finalist in the NASA competition.

Andrea Prosperetti with one his many accomplishments

For much of his career, Andrea Prosperetti has been called “Mr. Bubble” by his students for his intense focus on multiphase flows including bubble dynamics and cavitation, the formation of bubbles in a liquid.

With more than 8,000 citations on the Web of Science database and 15,000 on Google Scholar, you might say his work on fluid mechanics, the motion of liquids and gases, is effervescent. “I have done an awful lot of work on bubbles,” Prosperetti says modestly.
