Dr. Ugo Piomelli is the first member of the Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering to be elected to the Royal Society of Canada. He joined the department in 2008, and was awarded a Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in Computational Turbulence, and the HPCVL-Sun Microsystems Chair in Computational Science and Engineering. The Canada Research Chair was renewed in 2015. Over his tenure in MME, he has supervised fifteen students, some of whom have been inspired to join academia finding faculty positions at City University (London, UK), Purdue (West Lafayette, Indiana) and Michigan State University (East Lansing, Michigan).
The department is excited to welcome Dr. Jochen Kriegseis from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Institute of Fluid Mechanics (ISTM), Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany. Dr. Kreigseis will be discussing "Pattern Identification in Fluid Flow - From Flow Separation Towards Turbulent Super Structures" in the next presentation of the MME Distinguished Speakers Series.
