Dr. Lesley Wright is among the newest American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) fellows. The prestigious title has only been awarded to less than 5% of the society's members.

Wright serves as associate professor and Jana and Quentin A. Baker '78 Faculty fellow in the J. Mike Walker '66 Department of Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M University. She earned her doctoral degree in mechanical engineering from Texas A&M in 2006.

Wright said it is an honor for her research and educational activities to be recognized by ASME.

"Without the support of my family, students and colleagues, this honor would not be possible," Wright said. "Throughout my career, I have been blessed by many people willing to invest in me and my endeavors, and I am thankful for this support. I hope I can have a similar influence on the next generation of young engineers as we work together to positively impact the lives of others."

Wright's research focuses on gas turbine heat transfer, convective cooling technology, heat transfer enhancement, and heat transfer and fluid mechanics experimentation.

ASME fellows have at least 10 years of membership in the society and are recognized as having made significant engineering achievements. Less than 4,000 of the more than 90,000 ASME members have achieved the prestigious grade of fellow.
