Philippe M. Bardet
Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and International Affairs
Philippe Bardet's research focuses on experimental fluid mechanics and nuclear thermal hydraulics. He is specialized in developing new laser based diagnostics for multiphase and fluid-structure interaction flows. On-going research efforts include gas transfer in aquatic environments, plume dispersal in the environment, and seismic response of nuclear fuel assemblies.
Dr. Bardet earned a Diplôme d'Ingénieur in Applied Phyiscs from the Grenoble Institute of Technology (France) in 2002 and a Ph.D. in Nuclear Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley (2006). He joined the GW faculty in 2010 after postdoctoral and lecturer appointments at UC Berkeley and the California Institute of Technology.
