Research interests

The more Professor Itai Einav realises he doesn't know, the happier he is. His research into granular materials and particulate systems is driven by a passion for the unknown and a determination to continue extending the boundaries of geomechanical knowledge.

"I work with everything from the micron-sized particles found in powdered substances used in drugs to beach sand to large boulders. Anywhere there are particles, I'm there!

"What makes me happy is when I find out that I don't know something. That makes me curious, and it makes my research versatile and vibrant and interesting.

"When I start out on any research path I don't confine myself to aiming for a particular application. Of course I want my research to lead to something useful - otherwise I haven't done my job. But I try not to ask too many questions in the first instance about what those applications will be. I simply focus on understanding how particles behave under various conditions, and then try to apply what I've learned for some purpose.

"For example, some of the research my colleagues at SciGEM and I have done has improved our understanding of heat transfer within granular media, and this has led to commercial applications in seemingly unrelated systems, such as the cooling of computer processors and medical units. In another example, the knowledge gained through our research in breakage mechanics - a theory I developed in 2007 - has led to applications that aim to improve the productivity of mining operations, by blasting to precondition rocks so that they flow more freely without compromising safety.

"But I didn't set out to achieve either of those applications. I'm driven simply by the desire to understand fundamental phenomena. Then, once a particular phenomenon is understood, we'll know what we can do with that knowledge.

"I think it's such a challenge just to understand things. As a human being, I can't run as fast as a cheetah, I can't swim as well as a dolphin - but I can use my brain to understand things. And this is what I want to do.

"When people say to me, 'Are you crazy? Why would you study that?', I know that's exactly what I should be studying."
