Professor of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics
Raul Radovitzky is the Raymond L. Bisplinghoff Professor of Aeronautics and Astronautics in MIT’s Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics, and the associate director for the Institute for Soldier Nanotechnologies. His research interests include computational modeling and large-scale simulation of the response of solid materials and of fluid, structure interaction problems with particular interest in fundamental aspects of material and structural failure and blast effects on humans and structures. Radovitzky is a member of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, International Association of Computational Mechanics, American Academy of Mechanics, Materials Research Society and U.S. Association of Computational Mechanics. He earned a degree in civil engineering from the University of Buenos Aires, an MS in applied mathematics from Brown University, and a PhD in aeronautical engineering from the California Institute of Technology.
