About Me
Eric Shaqfeh is the Lester Levi Carter Professor of Chemical Engineering at Stanford University. He earned a B.S.E. summa cum laude from Princeton University (1981), and a M.S. (1982) and Ph.D. (1986) from Stanford University all in Chemical Engineering. In 1986, he was a NATO postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics at the University of Cambridge. From 1987 through 1989 he was employed as a Member of Technical Staff at AT&T Bell Laboratories in Murray Hill, NJ before joining the Stanford Chemical Engineering faculty in early 1990. In 2001 he received a dual appointment and became Professor of Mechanical Engineering. He is most recently (as of 2004) a faculty member in the Institute of Computational and Mathematical Engineering at Stanford. Shaqfeh’s current research interests include non-Newtonian fluid mechanics (especially in the area of elastic instabilities, and turbulent drag reduction), nonequilibrium polymer statistical dynamics (focusing on single molecules studies of DNA), and suspension mechanics (particularly of fiber suspensions and particles/vesicles in microfluidics). He has authored or co-authored over 200 publications and has been an Associate Editor of the Physical Review Fluids since 2016. Shaqfeh has received the APS Francois N. Frenkiel Award 1989, the NSF Presidential Young Investigator Award 1990, the David and Lucile Packard Fellowship in Science and Engineering 1991, the Camile and Henry Dreyfus Teacher--Scholar Award 1994, the W.M. Keck Foundation Engineering Teaching Excellence Award 1994, the 1998 ASEE Curtis W. McGraw Award,the 2011 Bingham Medal from the Society of Rheology, and the 2018 Alpha Chi Sigma Award from the AICHE. A Fellow of the American Physical Society (2001) and a member of the National Academy of Engineering(2013), he has held a number of professional lectureships, most recently the Merck Distinguished Lectureship, Rutgers (2003), the Corrsin Lectureship, Johns Hopkins (2003) and the Katz Lectureship, CCNY (2004). He was also the Hougen Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Wisconsin (2004) and the Probstein Lecturer at MIT (2011).
