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 of Mechanical and Materials Engineering is pleased to welcome two speakers in May to the Distinguished Speakers Series. On May 20th, we welcome Dr. Edouard Asselin from The Department of Materials Engineering at The University of British Columbia. Dr. Asselin will be discussing "Hydrometallurgy: the future of copper processing?". On May 27, we welcome Dr. Aleksandar Jemcov from the Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering from The University of Notre Dame, Indiana, USA. Dr. Jemcov will be discussing " All mach number fractional step solver for high fidelity turbulent flow simulations". Check out the abstracts here.
Both events are at 11am, room 312 in McLaughlin Hall.
