Alison Marsden, associate professor of pediatrics (cardiology) and of bioengineering, has been honored by the American Physical Society as a 2020 American Phyiscal Society Fellow.
The APS Fellowship Program was created to recognize members who have made advances in physics through original research and publications or made significant innovative contributions in the application of physics to science and technology. They may also have made significant contributions to the teaching of physics or service and participation in the activities of the society.
Marsden was nominated by the APS Division of Fluid Dynamics for “the development of numerical methods for cardiovascular blood flow simulation and their application to cardiovascular surgery and congenital heart disease.”
Fellowship is a distinct honor signifying recognition by one’s professional peers. Each year, no more than one half of one percent of the society’s membership (excluding student members) is recognized for election to the status of Fellow of the American Physical Society.
Congratulations, Professor Marsden!
