Celebrated UH researcher invited to Caltech as distinguished scholar
Date:11/24/2008

The California Institute of Technology has invited a longtime University of Houston engineering professor to spend next spring doing research and presenting seminars on its campus.

Fazle Hussain, professor of mechanical engineering at UH's Cullen College of Engineering, was the sole recipient of the Gordon and Betty Moore Distinguished Scholars Program appointment issued this year for Caltech's division of engineering and applied sciences. The program, started in 2000 with a $300 million gift from Intel Corp. co-founder Gordon Moore, invites to the campus technologists, scholars, researchers and artists of great distinction.

"I was thrilled to learn of the selection and readily accepted the invitation," said Hussain, director of UH's Institute of Fluid Dynamics and Turbulence. "I am looking forward to having exciting discussion and collaboration with Caltech faculty and students, who are among the best in the world."

In January, Hussain will begin his six-month visit to the Pasadena, Calif., campus, where he will collaborate with aeronautics and bioengineering professor Morteza "Mory" Gharib, whose research includes bioinspired design and mechanics and nano fluid mechanics.

"There are no teaching or other obligations during the appointment, allowing the Moore scholars to focus on research," said Caltech's Marlys Murray. "The program is unique and brings exceptional researchers to Caltech to infuse our community with vigorous, inspired discussions and share the details through seminars and lectures."

Gharib, who called Hussain "a world-renowned authority in fluid mechanics," is eager to collaborate. "The Gordon Moore award brings high-quality scientists to campus so we have the chance to experience research and academics alongside them," he said. "We hope this experience will be as rewarding for him as it will be for us."
