Mechanical Engineering Assistant Professor Johan Larsson was named to the editorial board of the American Institute for Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) Journal. He will serve in this role through the end of his term in 2020. The journal publishes papers on technical topics including aeroacoustics, aerodynamics, combustion and fluid mechanics, to name a few.

Larsson joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering in November 2012. He leads the Computational Turbulence Laboratory, which researches computational science, fluid mechanics, turbulence and turbulent combustion, high-fidelity simulations, and other related topics.

In his new role, Larsson joins Glenn L. Martin Institute Professor of Engineering and Affiliate Professor for the Department of Mechanical Engineering Elaine Oran at AIAA Journal, where she serves as a member of their advisory board.

Larsson received his Ph.D. in 2006 from the University of Waterloo, Canada. Previous to starting at UMD, he was at the Center for Turbulence Research at Stanford University. In 2015, Larsson received a NSF CAREER Award for his research in non-equilibrium turbulence. He has authored over 30 publications and is a member of the American Physical Society (APS) and a senior member of the AIAA and a member of the AIAA Fluid Dynamics Technical Committee.

AIAA Journal was established in 1963 and is published monthly.
