Diversity in science matters to breakthroughs. When more scientists with varied backgrounds and experiences fill laboratories and collaborate on teams, outcomes in innovation and discovery surpass those of less diverse scientific groups, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH)….
Mark Glauser named 2011 AIAA fellow
Mark Glauser, associate dean for research and doctoral programs and professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering in the L.C. Smith College of Engineering and Computer Science at Syracuse University, has been named a fellow by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA).
The distinction of fellow is conferred by AIAA upon outstanding members of the institute who have made notable and valuable contributions to the arts, sciences or technology of aeronautics or astronautics. Glauser has been recognized for his innovative use of multi-point low-dimensional approaches to develop physics-based closed-loop flow control methods for application to aerospace relevant turbulent flow phenomena.
Glauser has been published more than 75 times in various journals, books and conference proceedings. He has also co-edited one book and two journal special issues. Glauser has presented more than 150 talks throughout North America, Europe and Asia at various international meetings, government labs, universities and industries. Over the past several years, Glauser and his co-workers and graduate and REU students have been involved with several major experimental, computational and theoretical efforts for application of low-dimensional models to turbulent flows.
AIAA President Mark Lewis stated: “Being named a fellow of AIAA is among the highest honors that can be bestowed upon an aerospace professional, and represents recognition from colleagues and peers for great contributions to our field and technical community. I congratulate each member of this year’s class of fellows and honorary fellows.”
“Professor Glauser has distinguished himself and made seminal contributions in challenging areas of flow control,” says Achille Messac, Distinguished Professor and chair of the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. “He has been highly successful in undergraduate, graduate and post-doctoral education; and he has been visionary and productive in his administrative positions. We are truly proud to have him as our colleague.”
In 1933, Orville Wright became AIAA’s first honorary fellow. Today, AIAA honorary fellows and AIAA fellows are the most respected names in the aerospace industry. Presentation of the new fellows and honorary fellows will take place at the AIAA Aerospace Spotlight Awards Gala on May 11 at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, D.C.
