The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) announced its class of 2020 fellows, which includes Dr. Rodney Bowersox, professor and head of the Department of Aerospace Engineering at Texas A&M University.

Bowersox is the holder of the Ford Motor Co. Design Professorship I and was named a Department of Defense Vannevar Bush Faculty Fellow in 2017. He founded and directs the Texas A&M National Aerothermochemistry and Hypersonics Laboratory. He also serves on the Air Force Scientific Advisory Board. His research interests include gasdynamics, hypersonics, aerothermochemistry, high-speed aerodynamics, aero-propulsion, turbulence modeling and numerical simulations.

Bowersox received his doctoral degree in aerospace engineering from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in 1992. He is a fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and member of the American Chemical Society, American Physical Society and the Optical Society. He is also an associate editor for the AIAA Journal and AIAA Journal of Propulsion and Power.

The grade of fellow recognizes “individuals of distinction in aeronautics or astronautics who have made notable and valuable contributions to the arts, sciences or technology of aeronautics or astronautics.” To be selected, an individual must be an AIAA Associate Fellow and recommended by four members in good standing.

The class of 2020 AIAA Fellows will be inducted on May 19 and recognized on May 20 at the AIAA Aerospace Spotlight Awards Gala at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, D.C.
