Prof. Moshe Favelukis
Researches transport phenomena (fluid mechanics, heat transfer and mass transfer) with bubbles, drops and particles. Member of faculty in the Department of Chemical Engineering. He teaches a variety of courses in his fields of expertise, such as: Principles in Chemical Engineering, Fluid Mechanics, Heat and Mass Transfer in addition to supervising final projects.
Prof. Favelukis has a D.Sc. in Chemical Engineering from the Technion, where he also earned his B.Sc. and M.Sc. In 2008 he joined the Department of Chemical Engineering at Shenkar, prior to which he served as a lecturer at the College of Science and Engineering, James Cook University (JCU) in Australia, and as a professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the National University of Singapore (NUS).
