Alumnus Shaqfeh ‘81 Elected to National Academy of Engineering

Department alumnus Eric S. G. Shaqfeh ’81, Chair of the Department of Chemical Engineering and Lester Levi Carter Professor in the Departments of Chemical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University, has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering (NAE), as announced in a recent press release.  Shaqfeh was recognized “for 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.”
