Dr. Khosronejad, Assistant Professor in Civil Engineering, Gains Attention for Research Focusing on Respiratory Flow


Dr. K. Dr. Khosronejad and collaborators recently published a paper in the American Institute of Physics (AIP) journal Physics of Fluids focusing on respiratory flow and breathing while wearing or not wearing a face mask. Dr. Khosronejad's research determined that simply breathing without a face mask can transport saliva droplets 7 feet or more. Several news outlets picked up the story and have published articles based on Dr. Khosronejad's results. Web articles have been written up in the American Institute of Physics, News Medical  and  EurekAlert  to name just a few.
