Fluid Mechanics Expert Sandip Ghosal Awarded American Physical Society Fellowship

Sandip Ghosal, associate professor of mechanical engineering at the McCormick School of Engineering, has been elected a fellow of the American Physical Society (APS) in the Division of Fluid Dynamics.

The fellowship, which was conferred November 20 at the APS Division of Fluid Dynamics Annual Meeting in Baltimore, was granted in recognition of Ghosal’s “insightful mathematical models of multi-physics and multi-scale fluid flow phenomena."

Ghosal’s area of research is the hydrodynamics of ionic liquids on small scales, specifically the phenomena connected with the motion of fluids in the vicinity of electrically charged interfaces. His work has previously been recognized with a faculty fellowship at NASA’s American Society for Engineering Education, a fellowship at Northwestern’s Searle Center for Teaching Excellence, and a fellowship at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics program, among other honors.

The American Physical Society is a non-profit membership organization working to advance knowledge of physics through research journals, scientific meetings, and education, outreach, advocacy, and international activities. Fellowship is awarded based on a review by the APS Fellowship Committee, making it an honor signifying recognition by one’s professional peers.
