Hydrodynamic Quantum Analogs, Interfacial Fluid Dynamics


Bauyrzhan earned his Ph.D. from the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) at MIT, where he worked on interfacial fluid dynamics problems in porous media. He studied pattern formation during fluid-fluid displacement, percolation avalanches, spin-coating in capillary tubes, and dynamics of moving contact lines on rough surfaces. He held the MathWorks fellowship at MIT and was recognized with the CEE Best Doctoral Thesis Award.
