Congratulations to the newest Distinguished Professor of Mechanical Engineering and PQI Professor Peyman Givi!

PQI Professor Peyman Givi received his award from the Provost Patricia Beeson during his inaugural lecture last week. This distinction was awarded to Peyman for his visionary mind, his outstanding research, as well as his incredible mentorship; Peyman's numerous students have all moved to prestigious positions in both academia and industry. In the crowd of attendees, were Peyman's former mentors from Carnegie Mellon University and Youngstown State University, whom he did not forget to acknowledge. 

In his talk, entitled "Exascale HPC, Big Data, and Quantum Computing in Rocket Science", Peyman managed to convey the emergence of computational modeling as a full-blown discipline in the field of fluid dynamics and convinced us of the importance of directing our efforts towards the next big thing: quantum computing!
