ICM Announces Appointment of Dr. Rajat Mittal
The Institute for Computational Medicine is pleased to announce the addition of Dr. Rajat Mittal as a core faculty member.
Dr. Rajat Mittal is Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the Johns Hopkins University (JHU). He received the B. Tech. degree in aeronautical engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology at Kanpur in 1989, the M.S. degree in aerospace engineering from the University of Florida, Gainesville in 1991 and the Ph.D. degree in applied mechanics from The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, in 1995. He joined the Center for Turbulence Research Stanford University, Stanford, CA, as a Postdoctoral Fellow in 1995, where he conducted research in the area of turbulent flow simulations. Subsequently, he joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Florida where he taught from 1996 to 2001. Before coming to JHU he taught at George Washington University from 2001 to 2009 where he also founded the GW Center for Biomimetics and Bioinspired Engineering. His research interests include computational fluid dynamics, biomedical engineering, bioinspired engineering and flow control. He is recipient of the 1996 Francois Frenkiel Award from the Division of Fluid Dynamics of the American Physical Society, the 2006 Lewis Moody Award from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, and is an Associate Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.
