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).
