Dr. Bashar Khorbatly

Postdoctoral Research Fellow
School of Engineering – Mechanical Engineering

Dr. Bashar Khorbatly’s academic background includes a B.S. degree in Mathematics and a M.S. degree in partial differential equations and numerical analysis achieved at the Lebanese University. He received his Ph.D. degree in Mathematics from the Université de Tours, France in collaboration with the Lebanese University in Beirut. His research activity targets mainly the area of partial differential equations, his focus lies on studying dynamic properties of solutions to asymptotic nonlinear models and nonlinear dispersive PDEs arising in fluid mechanics. Modeling, justification and mathematical analysis of models in oceanography are research fields of his interest. Dr. Khorbatly is looking forward to extend his research work in the field of mechanical engineering, more specifically in aerodynamics of wind turbines.
