Richard E. Ewing, dean of Texas A&M University’s College of Science, has been elected a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
The AAAS Council (the association’s governing body) elects Fellows each year whose “efforts on behalf of the advancement of science or its applications are scientifically or socially distinguished.”
Ewing, dean of the College of Science since 1992, was recognized for pioneering research into the mathematical modeling of nonlinear diffusive flow of fluids, especially in recovering oil from oil reservoirs.
The award will be presented Saturday evening (Feb. 10) in Baltimore, Md., during the AAAS Fellows’ Forum, part of the association’s annual meeting.
A three-degree mathematics graduate of the University of Texas in Austin, Ewing has conducted extensive research in numerical analysis, mathematical modeling, the flow of fluids through porous materials, and the use of computers in large-scale scientific computation.
Before coming to Texas A&M, Ewing was J.E. Warren Distinguished Professor of Energy and Environment and professor of mathematics, petroleum engineering and chemical engineering at the University of Wyoming. He also directed that university’s Enhanced Oil Recovery Institute, Institute for Scientific Computation and the Wyoming Center for Energy Research.
