- Ph.D., Massachusetts Institute of Technology,
- M.S., Harvard University, 1998
- B.S., The Cooper Union, 1996
Professor Rothstein's research interests
are quite broad, drawing from topics commonly associated
with mechanical engineering, but also from fields related
to chemical engineering, biomechanical engineering and optical
engineering. His current research program is a well balanced
experimental and theoretical research program in the dynamics
of complex fluids. Among other topics, Professor Rothstein
research interests include non-Newtonian fluid dynamics,
non-isothermal flow, hydrodynamics stability, optical measurement
techniques, microfluidics, laminar and turbulent drag redution,
rheology and polymer processing.
