Ching-Long Lin, professor of mechanical and industrial engineering, faculty research engineer at IIHR--Hydroscience & Engineering, and researcher at the Iowa Institute for

Biomedical Imaging, has been elected as a Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS) Division of Fluid Dynamics (DFD), one of the highest honors in the professional society of fluid mechanics.

Lin is honored "for his contribution to multiscale flow physics and computational techniques, including pulmonary tracheobronchial and acinar flows, image-based data-driven human lung models, lattice-Boltzmann methods, coherent structures in atmospheric boundary layer and four dimensional data assimilation."

Lin will be recognized at the annual APS DFD meeting November 23-25 in San Francisco.
