Yuval Dagan
Assistant Professor
Faculty of Aerospace Engineering, Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, Israel.




I received my B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering (2006), B.Sc. in Aerospace Engineering (2007), M.S.c (2013, during direct track to PhD), and PhD in Aerospace Engineering (2016) from the Technion. From 2007 to 2017 I was working as a Research Engineer in the department of Aerodynamics at RAFAEL – Advanced Defense Systems. In 2017 I received the MIT-Technion Postdoctoral Fellowship and joined the Reacting Gas Dynamics Laboratory in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology  as a postdoctoral fellow under the supervision of Prof. Ahmed Ghoniem. In 2018 I joined the Applied Mathematics Laboratory at MIT as a Postdoctoral Research Associate under the supervision of Prof. John Bush. Since 2019 I am an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering at the Technion.

Research Interests

My research focuses on revealing fundamental principles of flow processes that may involve reacting constituents and interacting particles. My research interests span the areas of advanced propulsion, reacting flows, multiphase flows, flow instabilities and turbulence, and particle-wave interactions by combining both mathematical models and high-fidelity numerical simulations.

We are currently building the Multiphase Dynamics and Stability Laboratory at the Department of Aerospace Engineering. In the lab, we will combine high-fidelity computations and experiments to validate our theoretical models.
