Ivan Marusic Wins 2016 Stanley Corrsin Award for Fluid Dynamics Research

COLLEGE PARK, MD. July 20, 2016 – Ivan Marusic of the University of Melbourne has won the American Physical Society’s 2016 Stanley Corrsin Award. The annual award recognizes and encourages a particularly influential contribution to fundamental fluid dynamics.

The Corrsin Award citation honors Marusic for “seminal contributions to the understanding of turbulent wall-­bounded flows through laboratory and atmospheric studies of long meandering structures, models of their effect on the wall stress, and extensions of the attached eddy hypothesis.”

The award consists of $5,000 and an allowance for registration and travel to the 2016 APS Division of Fluid Dynamics meeting in Portland, Oregon where the award will be presented. The meeting will take place November 20-22.

Ivan Marusic is a Redmond Barry Distinguished Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Melbourne, and an Australian Research Council Laureate Fellow. He received his Ph.D. in 1992 and a Bachelors in 1987 from the University of Melbourne. His research is primarily in experimental and theoretical studies of turbulence at high Reynolds numbers. This includes studies in atmospheric surface layer flows and aquatic ecosystems. Prior to arriving in Melbourne in 2007 as an ARC Federation Fellow he was a faculty member at the University of Minnesota, where he was a recipient of an NSF Career Award and a Packard Fellowship in Science and Engineering. Marusic is a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science, the American Physical Society, and the Australasian Fluid Mechanics Society.
