Professor Omar Matar elected Fellow of the American Physical Society

Professor Omar Matar, Professor of Fluid Mechanics at Imperial College and key researcher for UNIHEAT's Theme 1 -Multi-scale modelling of crude oil fouling: from molecular to plant scale-, has been elected a Fellow of the American Physical Society in recognition of his contributions to fluid dynamics and physics.

We are very pleased to announce that Professor Omar Matar has been elected to the Fellowship of the American Physical Society (APS) in recognition of his long-standing research towards understanding the behaviour of fluids and interfaces. 

The American Physical Society recognised Professor Matar’s contributions to interfacial fluid dynamics in the presence of surfactants, nanoparticles and electric fields, using theory and computation and with applications in industrial and daily life settings when awarding him this prestigious fellowship. It should be noted that election to the Fellowship of the APS is limited to half of one percent of the overall members and is a glowing recommendation of Professor Matar’s outstanding contributions to physics.

Please join us in extending our congratulations to Professor Matar on behalf of the UNIHEAT project.
