Sarah Hormozi received her M.Sc. in Mathematics and her Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of British Columbia in 2011. She then completed the most prestigious Canadian postdoctoral fellowship award, sponsored by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC). Currently, she is an Associate Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and a graduate field faculty of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Cornell University.
Before coming to Cornell, Hormozi was an associate professor of Mechanical Engineering at Ohio University. The underlying foundation of her work at Ohio was an effort to better integrate the separate fields of colloidal science and non-Brownian suspensions. In spite of their ubiquity, the mechanics of these complex fluids are not well understood. Hormozi’s research has been recognized by a number of awards, including the National Science Foundation CAREER award and the ACS Petroleum Research Fund Doctoral New Investigator Award. Hormozi also serves on the editorial boards of Physical Review Fluids, Journals of Non-Newtonian Fluid Mechanics, The American Institute of Chemical Engineers, and Physics of Fluids. Hormozi is also a Faculty Fellow at Cornell Atkinson Center for Sustainability and a Faculty Fellow in the team of Professor Stephanie R. Thomas, Faculty in Residence, Low Rises 6&7 Community. Hormozi’s goal is to use science to inspire and empower every individual student to become engaged, confident, and connected leaders in our communities and society.
