Alumnus Wagner *89 Elected to National Academy of Engineering

Department alumnus Norman J. Wagner *89, Robert L. Pigford Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Delaware, has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering (NAE), as announced today in an NAE press release.  Wagner was recognized “for understanding flow-induced microstructural transitions in complex liquids and invention of ballistic-resistant fabrics by strain-hardening suspensions, contributions to dynamics and rheology of complex fluids, including polymeric liquids, vesicles, and fiber suspensions”.  Election to the National Academy of Engineering, which was established in 1964, is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to an engineer.  Academy membership honors those who have made outstanding contributions to “engineering research, practice, or education, including, where appropriate, significant contributions to the engineering literature,” and to the “pioneering of new and developing fields of technology, making major advancements in traditional fields of engineering, or developing/implementing innovative approaches to engineering education.”
