Sandra Troian , professor of chemical engineering, has been named a 2004 Moore Distinguished Scholar by the California Institute of Technology.
The program, named for Intel co-founder Gorden Moore, allows scholars to reside at Caltech for a period up to one year and have no formal duties other than scholarly pursuits and interaction with the faculty. Troian hopes to devote her time to the study of fundamental problems involving the stability of microscale flows and to develop hybrid technologies combining recent advances in microelectronics with microfluidic systems.
At Princeton since 1993, Troian also is an associate faculty member in the Department of Physics, the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and the Program in Applied and Computational Mathematics and director of the Microfluidics Research and Engineering Laboratory in the School of Engineering and Applied Science. In recognition of her work on free surface flows and thin film instabilities, she received the Frenkiel Award from the American Physical Society in 1999.
