Air Pollution and Health; A Novel Idea to Reduce the Risk Associated with Emission of Smoke Particles from Transportation; Dynamics of Aerosols Emitted from the Respiratory System and Transferring Viruses
Dates in the U.S.: August 10st - October 10st, 2013
Prof. Katoshevski graduated from Technion with degrees in Aerospace Engineering (BSc/MSc) and Applied Math (PhD). He dealt with mathematical modeling of fuel-spray dynamics. He had two post-doc periods, one in Aachen, Germany (1995-1996) and the second one at Caltech (1996-1998) in the field of Environmental Engineering. In 1998 he joined the newly established Environmental Engineering Unit at BGU. Later on he was involved in the establishment of the academic program for the Israeli Air Force Pilots Course.
In the recent years he has served as the head of the unit for management and safety engineering. He deals with air pollution, combustion and dynamics of particles in the micron and nano scale. His recent studies deal with a novel idea how to reduce the risk associated with smoke particles emitted from vehicles and other sources. Since December of 2012 he has served as the Chairman of the Israeli Association for Combustion Research.
