Congratulations to James E. Knott Professor Iain Boyd for his election to the Royal Aeronautical Society as a Fellow. Founded in 1866, the Royal Aeronautical Society aims to “further the advancement of aeronautical art, science and engineering around the world.”
To receive this honor, a Fellow must have made “outstanding contributions in the profession of aeronautics, attained a position of high responsibility in the field and have had long experience of high quality.” Two current members of the Royal Aeronautical Society must sponsor the application.
In addition to this honor, Professor Boyd is a Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics and the American Physical Society. His research interests include the numerical simulation of aerospace systems involving nonequilibrium gas and plasma dynamics.
