Geoffrey McFadden Elected APS Fellow
Geoffrey B. McFadden, Leader of the Mathematical Modeling Group of
ITL's Mathematical and Computational Sciences Division, has been
elected a Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS). McFadden is
being recognized "for fundamental insights into the effect of fluid
flow on crystal growth and for an innovative approach to phase field
methods in fluid mechanics." McFadden's interest in the study of
crystal growth began when he joined NIST in 1981. Since then he has
published more than 100 papers with colleagues in MSEL, as well as
with researchers at external institutions such as Carnegie Mellon
University, Northwestern University, Rensselaer Polytechnic, and the
University of Southampton.
The APS's Division of Fluid Dynamics recommended the nomination.
Fellowship in the APS is limited to no more than one-half of one
percent of APS membership. Presentation of the fellowship
certificate will take place at the Annual Meeting of the Division of
Fluid Dynamics to be held in San Diego, November 18-20, 2001.
