We are a curiosity-driven lab with core expertise in fluid mechanics and electrokinetics. We are equally interested in understanding basic phenomena associated with the physics and chemistry of fluids as in leveraging this understanding to create new tools and new capabilities across a wide range of applications. Some of our recent contributions are in the fields of advanced manufacturing, freeform optics, in-space manufacturing, microfluidics, and biochemical analysis.
This website provides a glimpse into our past work, but the best is always yet to come.
Meet the team
Moran Bercovici, Ph.D.
Professor of Mechanical Engineering
Moran Bercovici is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, and heads the Fluidic Technologies Laboratory. He received his BSc (2001) and MSc (2006) from the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering at Technion. Between 2001 and 2006 he was a Research Engineer at RAFAEL, working on experimental and computational aerodynamics. He received his Ph.D. from Stanford University (2011), and spent a short postdoctoral period in the Department of Urology at Stanford School of Medicine before joining Technion as a faculty member in 2011. Moran was elected among the “40 under 40 most promising individuals” in Israel by The Marker magazine, and has received numerous prestigious grants and awards for his research and teaching, including two ERC grants awarded by the European Research Council to innovative high-risk / high-gain research, the Krill Prize for Excellence in Scientific Research from the Wolf Foundation, the Yanai Prize – Technion’s highest recognition for the advancement of academic education, the Harrington Faculty Fellowship by the University of Texas at Austin, and the Blavatnik Award in Chemistry.
