FloryanA Council of Representatives from the American Physical Society have elected J.M. Floryan a Fellow of the Society.

Nominated for his seminal illumination of the critical influence of surface topography and heating on surface drag; and the onset of shear-, centrifugal-, buoyance-, and parametric-resonance driven instabilities; Floryan joins a diverse group of experts in the physics enterprise.

“I am honored to receive this recognition from the American Physical Society,” says Floryan. “Fellowship is a distinct honor signifying recognition by one's professional peers.” 

Floryan is a professor and chair of the department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering at Western University. His research interests are in fluid mechanics, specifically in the development of flow control strategies.
