PostDoc, Harvard University; Ph.D. Wesleyan University
Shima Parsa is an assistant professor of Physics at RIT. She is an experimental Soft Matter Physicist and her research spans from the flow of complex fluids in porous media to sedimentation in Marshland. She studies the small-scale dynamics of multi-phase fluids and investigates their impact on large-scale transport, see research website at https://people.rit.edu/spmsps/.
Shima joined RIT in 2019 after her postdoctoral fellowship at Harvard in Applied Physics studying Soft Matter physics and microscale phenomena. She completed her Ph.D. in Physics at Wesleyan in 2013.
