Ari Glezer is holder of the George W. Woodruff Chair in Thermal Systems and a Professor the Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology where he moved in 1992 from the Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of Arizona. Before he became a member of the faculty at the University of Arizona in 1984, Professor Glezer worked as a senior research engineer at the Aircraft Division of Northrop Corporation, and was a Research Fellow in the Faculty of Engineering at Tel Aviv University. Professor Glezer received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Tel Aviv University in 1974, and his M.S. and Ph.D. in Aeronautics from the California Institute of Technology in 1975 and 1981, respectively. Professor Glezer is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.

Professor Glezer’s research interests are in the area of manipulation and control of shear flows with particular emphasis on flow control in aerodynamic applications and heat transfer processes, novel thermal management techniques, small-scale mixing and in non-reacting and reacting flows, and heat recovery in environment and industrial applications. Professor Glezer’s work has been supported by AFOSR, ARO, ARPA-E, DARPA, DOE, NSF, NASA, and ONR. Industrial sponsors have included Boeing, Intel, Honeywell, IBM, Novartis, and United technologies.
