Personal profile


Prof.  Bar-Yoseph is head of GTIIT’s Mechanical Engineering and Robotics Program and co-head of GTIIT’s Research Center for Science & Engineering in Health and Medicine [GTIIT-SEHM].

Prof. Bar-Yoseph earned his BSc’s (1972), MSc’s (1975), and DSc (1978) degrees in Mechanical Engineering at the Technion-IIT. In 1979 as a Lady Davies postdoctoral fellow, he joined Prof. Ted Pian’s research group in Aero. & Astro. department at MIT. His postdoctoral research study focused on developing a novel variational-asymptotic methodology for 3-D stress analysis in composite laminates.

Prof. Bar-Yoseph has been on the faculty of ME Technion since 1981 and has served, for three consecutive terms, as dean, as well as the head of Biomechanics Center of Excellence and Computational Mechanics & Biomechanics Laboratory. He was promoted to full professor on 1997, and since 2005 he has been appointed as the second incumbent of the Samuel and Anne Tolkovsky chair in Mechanical Engineering.

Prof. Bar-Yoseph is a Fellow of ASME, and the first founding president of the Israel Association for Computational Methos in Mechanics [IACMM]. He served as the scientific director of the High Performance Computing Center [HPCU] in the National Inter University Computation Center [IUCC]. He is the founder of the International Symposium series on Bifurcation and Instabilities in Fluid Mechanics [BIFD].

Prof. Bar-Yoseph is considered as one of the early pioneers of the novel B-spline FE approach for geometrical design and mechanical analysis. For the past 25 years, he has been actively engaged in a wide variety of interdisciplinary research studies. He has co-authored of 190 publications, including journal and conference papers, and book chapters. Bar-Yoseph has mentored 64 students (graduate and post doctorate).  

Prof. Bar-Yoseph was a visiting Professor at MIT, Stanford, Northwestern, University of Sydney, Technical University of Darmstadt, UCSD, Technical University of Denmark, and SUNY at Stony Brook.
