Gad-el-Hak has since taught and conducted research at the University of Southern California, University of Virginia, University of Notre Dame, Institut National Polytechnique de Grenoble, Université de Poitiers, Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, Technische Universität München and Technische Universität Berlin, and has lectured extensively at seminars in the United States and overseas. Dr. Gad-el-Hak is currently the Inez Caudill Eminent Professor of biomedical engineering and professor of mechanical engineering at Virginia Commonwealth University. From 2002 to 2009, Gad-el-Hak was the chair of mechanical engineering at VCU. Dr. Gad-el-Hak has published over 500 articles, authored/edited 18 books and conference proceedings, and presented 280 invited lectures. He is the author of the book “Flow Control: Passive, Active, and Reactive Flow Management,” and editor of the books “Frontiers in Experimental Fluid Mechanics,” “Advances in Fluid Mechanics Measurements,” “Flow Control: Fundamentals and Practices,” “The MEMS Handbook” (first and second editions), “Transition and Turbulence Control,” and “Large-Scale Disasters: Prediction, Control and Mitigation.” Professor Gad-el-Hak is a fellow of the American Physical Society, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, and the American Academy of Mechanics. In 1998, Professor Gad-el-Hak was named the Fourteenth ASME Freeman Scholar. In 1999, Gad-el-Hak was awarded the prestigious Alexander von Humboldt Prize, Germany’s highest research award for worldwide scientists and scholars in all disciplines.
