The American Physical Society proudly presented a list of its newest members to be elected to Fellowship. Each new fellow is elected after careful and competitive review and recommendation by a fellowship committee on the unit level, additional review by the APS Fellowship Committee and final approval by the full APS Council. Only 1/2 of 1% of the total APS membership is selected for Fellowship in the Society each year. This year a total of 194 new fellows are selected and the new fellows for APS/DFD are as follows:
  • Sam R. Coriell (NIST)
    For fundamental contributions to the theory of interaction between hydrodynamics and morphological instabilities during solidification.

  • Mohamed Gad-el-Hak (Univ. of Notre Dame)
    For his original contributions to reactive controls of turbulent flows, pioneering work in developing laser-induced fluorescence techniques, and definitive experiments detailing fluid-compliant surface interactions.

  • Juan Lasheras (Univ. of California, San Diego)
    For landmark contributions to the fundamental understanding of combustion, free shear flows, particle/fluid interaction, and turbulence induced atomization of imiscible fluids.

  • Dominique Salin (Laboratoire FAST),
    For significant contributions in the development of experimental methods and lattice gas simulations that led to improved understanding of flows in Hele-Shaw cells and porous media and of suspensions.

  • Omar Savas (Univ. of California, Berkeley)
    For contributions to the understanding of fluid flows through innovative experimentation in boundary layers, rotating flows, contributions, and vortex dynamics.

  • Eric S. G. Shaqfeh (Stanford Univ.)
    For applying statistical theories and numerical simulations to determine the averaged equations for fiber suspensions and polymeric fluids and elucidating the physical mechanism leading to hydrodynamic instabilities of complex fluids.

  • William Sirignano (Univ. of California, Irvine)
    For his pioneering efforts in combining modeling and simulation of complex multiphase flows, and for the understanding these models have provided for pool fires and capillary instabilities.

  • Gretar Tryggvason (Worcester Polytechnic Institute)
    For pioneering the use of direct numerical simulations of the study of finite Reynolds number multiphase flows, including the development of computational methods and studies of bubbly flows.

  • Daniel Weihs (Technion-Israel Institute of Technology)
    For outstanding contributions to aircraft performance, animal locomotion and behavior, fishing industry and ecoenvironmental quality.

  • Congratulations to our colleagues for receiving this singular honor.
