Dana Grecov

Associate Professor, Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of British Columbia

Rheology, rheometry, non-Newtonian fluid mechanics, computational fluid mechanics, liquid crystals, biolubricants, lubricants, journal bearings, multi-phase flow, biofluid mechanics, mathematical modelling, synovial joints, synovial fluid, arthrithis



Dana Grecov received her BEng degree in Mechanical Engineering from University Politehnica in Bucharest and her PhD in Fluid Mechanics from Institut National Polytechnique de Grenoble. After a postdoctoral research fellow position at McGill University, she joined the University of British Columbia in 2005.

Her expertise is in biofluid mechanics, non-Newtonian fluid mechanics, rheology and mathematical modeling. She has 20 years of experience in complex fluids research, constitutive modeling development, and numerical simulations. Grecov received the CFI (Canada Foundation for Innovation) Leaders Opportunity Award in 2007, a Peter Wall Early Career Scholar Award in 2007 and the NSERC (Natural Science and Engineering Research Council) Discovery Accelerator Award in 2016.
