Professor Howard Stone received the BS degree in Chemical Engineering from UC Davis in 1982 and the PhD in Chemical Engineering from Caltech in 1988. After a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Cambridge, in 1989 Howard joined the faculty of the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard University, where he eventually became the Vicky Joseph Professor of Engineering and Applied Mathematics. In July 2009 Howard moved to Princeton University where he is Donald R. Dixon '69 and Elizabeth W. Dixon Professor in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.
Howard's research interests are in fluid dynamics, especially as they arise in problems at the interface of engineering, biology, chemistry, and physics. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS) and is past Chair of the Division of Fluid Dynamics of the APS. He was the first recipient of the G.K. Batchelor Prize in Fluid Dynamics (2008). He has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering (2009), the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (2011), and the National Academy of Sciences (2014).
