Duggleby and Doron's paper, "Optical density measurements and analysis for single-mode initial-condition buoyancy-driven mixing," was selected for the award, which will be presented at the annual ASME FED Summer Meeting in Puerto Rico in July.

Duggleby is an assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. He joined the Texas A&M Engineering faculty in 2008. His research interests include the understanding of turbulent transport of mass, momentum, and heat in fluids and plasmas using high-performance computational diagnostics, experiments and mathematical analysis. He directs theFluids, Turbulence and Fundamental Transport Lab in the mechanical engineering department.

He earned bachelor's degrees in mechanical engineering and physics from Texas A&M, a master's degree from the University of Texas at Austin, and a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from Virginia Tech.

Doron earned a master's degree in mechanical engineering from Texas A&M and is currently a lecturer in the department.
