Dr. Nadine Aubry, Dean of the College of Engineering and University Distinguished Professor at Northeastern University, has made notable contributions to fluid dynamics, particularly the reduced modeling of turbulence and other complex flows, and microfluidics. She was elected to the U.S. National Academy of Engineering (NAE) and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (AAAS), and is a Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS), the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), the American Academy of Mechanics (AAM) and the U.S. National Academy of Inventors (NAI). She was awarded the G.I. Taylor Medal from the Society of Engineering Science (SES) for outstanding contributions to fluid mechanics. She currently serves as President of the International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (IUTAM), Vice Chair of the NAE Mechanical Engineering Section, Chair of the NAE Bernard M. Gordon Prize for Innovation in Engineering and Technology Education Selection Committee, and on the International Science Council (ISC-“The global voice for science”), the NAE Council (governing board), the NAE Membership Policy Committee (MPC), and the Executive Committee of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Section M (Engineering). In the past, her leadership positions have included Chair of the APS Division of Fluid Dynamics (APS/DFD), Chair of the National Academies’ U.S. National Committee for Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (USNC/TAM), Chair of the U.S. delegation to IUTAM, and Chair of the NAE Frontiers of Engineering Education (FOEE) Advisory Committee. Dr. Aubry has also served on a number of advisory and review boards in the United States and in foreign countries, including Austria, France, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, and South Korea. Prior to joining Northeastern as Dean in 2012, she was Head of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Raymond J. Lane Distinguished Professor and University Professor at Carnegie Mellon University.
Dr. Aubry grew up in France and holds a Diplôme d’Ingénieur from Institut National Polytechnique (INP) Grenoble and a D.E.A. (Diplôme d’Etudes Approfondies) from Université Grenoble Alpes both in Mechanical Engineering in 1984, and a Ph.D. in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from Cornell University in 1987.

The first International Conference on Biomaterials and Chemical Biology was hosted at Northeastern University by the Department of Chemical Engineering. Collaborative research in these disciplines has the potential to advance the field of biomaterials in a unique way and lead to new discoveries for better medicines and treatments. Additionally, Xingdong Zhang, Professor and Honorary Director of the National Engineering Research Center for Biomaterials at Sichuan University, was named University Distinguished Professor by Provost James Bean and Dean Nadine Aubry.
