Bogdan Epureanu

Arthur F. Thurnau Professor of Mechanical Engineering

Professor, Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Michigan. Ph.D., Mechanical Engineering, Duke University, 1999; Graduate Studies, University of Valladolid, 1994; M.S., Mechanical Engineering, Galati University, 1993; Graduate Studies, École Nationale Supérieure des Mines de Paris, 1992. Research interests include Research focuses on biological and epidemiological systems, aerospace and automotive structures, and turbomachinery. Examples include creating novel mechano-chemical dynamic models of nanoscale intracellular transport processes, developing the next generation of highly-sensitive diagnosis and monitoring techniques, discovering novel methods for forecasting tipping points in complex systems such as disease epidemics and ecological systems, developing innovative reduced order models of multi-physics systems such as Li-ion batteries and complex structures, creating advanced system identification and control methodologies for smart structures and fluid-structural systems, these blend novel methods and theory with fundamental experiments in linear and nonlinear dynamics from macro to nano-scale. Associate Fellow, American Institute for Aeronautics & Astronautics (AIAA); 1938E Award, College of Engineering, University of Michigan, 2007; Outstanding Achievement Award, Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Michigan, April 2006; 6 invited lectures, plenaries and keynotes; Invited by the National Academy of Engineering, to participate at the Frontiers of Engineering Symposium, Niskayuna, NY, September 2005.
