N. S. Susan Mousavi, PhD

Visiting Assistant Professor

Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering


Susan Mousavi holds a PhD and MS in Mechanical Engineering from NYU-Poly (now NYU Tandon School of Engineering); and a BS in Mechanical Engineering-Thermal and Fluid from Tehran University.

Mousavi's research interests include thermal fluid sciences, with a focus on thermophysical and optical properties of ferrofluids; and optical biosensors, with a focus on fiber-based optical techniques to develop neuro-sensors. In-field behavior of ferrofluids such as development of field-assisted microstructures and their influence on thermophysical and optical properties of ferrofluids, reversibility of the assemblies, and laboratory measurements of thermal properties of in-field ferrofluids are of interest.  Also, she is interested in the applications of ferrofluids with a focus on the integration of their biomedical applications and bio-sensing.  She mastered in Electron Microscopy (EM) and cryogenic transmission electron microscopy (Cryo-TEM) and is interested in the science of electron microscopy and its application in facilitating in-situ observation of microstructures.  

Dr. Mousavi held an adjunct faculty position at the ME Department of NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering, and was postdoctoral research scientist at NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering.
