About Mark M. Weislogel

Mark Weislogel worked for NASA for 10 years, during which time he sent his own zero-g experiments into both air and space. He came to Portland State in 2001. "I really caught the vision and the potential of this university," he says.
His research is about finding methods to improve the transport of fluids within a variety of systems and devices. The fluids often must travel through highly angular geometries unlike those found in nature. Weislogel and his students study conduits of different shapes, and test their theories by sending them into zero-g, whether in NASA drop towers, low-g aircraft, the Space Shuttle, or the International Space Station.
Space is the perfect training ground for many engineering pursuits. Weislogel provides undergraduates opportunity through the LaunchPSU program, a NASA co-sponsored program in which students send high altitude balloons with mission specific instrumentation into the limits of the atmosphere. It's great fun, and highly instructional.
