A graduate student of the Plastics Engineering Department awarded his Ph.D degree from UMass Lowell

Amir Moshe - a graduate student of the Plastics Engineering Department - awarded his Ph.D degree from the University of Massachusetts (UMass Lowell). He defended successfully his Doctorate Thesis, who deals with modeling of polymer melt rheology and viscoelastic behavior.

After graduted from Shenkar, 3 years ago, Moshe was sent to the University of Massachusetts for direct doctorate studies. The model that was proposed in ;his thesis yields very high fitting fidelity with respect to viscosity and relaxation times. His research was supervised by two UMass Lowell faculty members -  Prof. David Kazmer and Prof. Stephen Johnston - and Shenkar's Prof. Samuel Kenig.

In the frame of his work 4 journal articles were authorized and are in process of publication and the research work was presented in2 international conferences.

Dr. Moshe is the fifth graduate of Shenkar's Plastics Engineering department that was sent to UML under the Pernick Fund sponsorship. Tehila Nahum and Eliad Cohen (who already defended their doctorate proposal) are the next candidates to defend their Thesis next year.
