Professor Atassi has been teaching and conducting basic and applied research in fluid mechanics, aerodynamics, aeroacoustics, aeroelasticity, hydroacoustics, structural acoustics, °uid/structure interaction, applied and com- putational mathematics. He has has made seminal contributions in unsteady high speed °ow phenomena and aero-hydroacoustics which have led to advanced modeling and control of aircraft engine and submarine propulsion components and noise. He is the author of more than 170 technical papers and has given more than 80 invited lectures in North America, Europe and Japan. He is a member of the editorial board of American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. Professor Atassi is the founding director of Notre Dame Center for Applied Mathematics. He directs a group of post-doctoral researchers and graduate students at Notre Dame Hessert Cen- ter for Aerospace Research. His research is currently funded by NASA, the U.S. Office of Naval Research, the National Science Foundation, and Pratt and Whitney. He also closely collaborates with scientists and engineers at NASA Glenn and Langley Research Centers, the U.S. Navy David Taylor Research and Development Center, the Air Force Academy, Purdue University, Pratt and Whitney, the Ecole Centrale at the University of Lyon (France) and the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (France) where he is frequently a visiting professor.
