PROFESSOR JAMES WALLACE EARNS FACULTY AWARD, BURGERS BOARD APPOINTMENT

Mechanical Engineering Professor James Wallace has been selected for the 2004 University System of Maryland Regents’ Faculty Award for Excellence in Teaching. Congratulations to Professor Wallace for this outstanding achievement.

Professor Wallace has also been appointed to be a member of the “Burgers Board” to help promote awareness fluid dynamics on campus and abroad.

Fluid dynamics in this context is viewed to include a broad range of dynamics, from nanoscales to geophysical scales, in simple and complex fluids.

Members of the Burgers Board are: Jan V. Sengers, Chair; J. Robert Dorfman; Daniel P. Lathrop; Rajarshi Roy; Gijs Ooms (Director of the J.M. Burgers Center in The Netherlands); Katepalli R. Sreenivasan (Director International Centre for Theoretical Physics, Triest); and James M. Wallace.

The Burgers Board organizes an annual Burgers Lecture in the fall.
