 Siddhartha Das, associate professor of mechanical engineering at the University of Maryland (UMD) has been named to the editorial advisory board of Physics of Fluids, the journal announced this April.

It is the latest in a succession of accolades for Das, who has been conducting novel research into the behavior of liquids inside nanochannels by means of molecular simulations and fluidics and ionics of polymer-functionalized systems.

 “This is one of the highest Impact Factor journals in the area of fluid mechanics,” Das said, referring to the widely-used measure of journal citations calculated by Clarivate’s Web of Science. “The editorial advisory board includes some of the most distinguished researchers in the field, so being invited to become a part of it is a tremendous honor. I’m very excited.” 

 Published monthly by AIP Publishing, a subsidiary of the American Institute of Physics, Physics of Fluids showcases original theoretical, computational, and experimental contributions to the understanding of the dynamics of gases, liquids, and complex or multiple fluids. It has a five-year Impact Factor of 4.534 and an overall Impact Factor of 4.984. The editor-in-chief is Alan Jeffrey Giacomin.

 Das joined the UMD mechanical engineering faculty in 2014 and was promoted to the rank of Associate Professor five years later. He has published more than 170 journal papers, including in Nature Materials, Science Advances, PNAS, Nucleic Acid Research, Nature Communications, Advanced Materials, ACS Nano (October 2021 and April 2021), Matter, and Macromolecules. Earlier this year, he was named an Emerging Investigator by the journal Soft Matter.

 Das is a Fellow of the Institute of Physics and also of the Royal Society of Chemistry. In July 2022, he was elected a Fellow of the Institute of Engineering Technology (IET), based in the United Kingdom.
