Dr. Vladimir Parezanovic has joined Khalifa University in August 2017 as an assistant professor. He has more than ten years of experience in experimental research on fundamental topics in fluid mechanics and aerodynamics, on several ANR (Agence Nationale de la Recherche) and CNES (Centre Nationale d’Etudes Spatiales) research projects. He obtained his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in 2008 and 2011 (respectively) from the prestigious Ecole Polytechnique – ParisTech (Palaiseau, France), in the domain of Fluid Mechanics. He also holds an B.Sc. degree from the University of Belgrade (Serbia) in Aeronautical Engineering. He specialises in turbulent wakes, fluid instabilities, flow control, machine learning and wind tunnel experiments. He has designed and built experiments studying two-dimensional mixing layers, cylinder flows, flow separation phenomena, boundary layer/shockwave interaction, and tri-dimensional wakes of axisymmetric bluff bodies. Often, his focus was on flow control, using diverse types of actuators and control schemes: from steady perturbations, to closed-loop control using Dielectric-Barrier-Discharge (plasma jet) actuators. He’s secondary field of expertise is Machine Learning, focusing on applications in flow control and prediction. In addition to the above, his research interests also include bio-inspired flow sensing and control, compressed sensing techniques and non-deterministic models for flow control. His teaching interests and experience is mainly in classical mechanics, fluid mechanics, aerodynamics and flight mechanics.
