Mechanical Engineering is happy to announce that Professor Igor Mezic has been elected a Fellow of the American Physical Society. Members of the APS are elected to Fellowship for their exceptional contributions to the field of physics and its enterprise.

Professor Mezic's research focuses on an operator-theoretic approach to analysis of nonlinear dynamical systems, applications in microfluidics and (bio)-nanotechnology, and his research is characterized by pursuit of the key physical phenomena in a device or system followed by the abstraction of the mathematical problem (or problems) associated with it, as well as applying the solution of the mathematical problem to explain the physical phenomena or design new concepts based on which devices can be built or improved.

Professor Mezic was ellected to Fellowship of the APS for his "fundamental contributions to the theory of three-dimensional chaotic advection, measures and control of mixing, and development of a spectral operator theory approach to decomposition of complex fluid flows."
