Dr. Rodney Bowersox from the Department of Aerospace Engineering at Texas A&M University received the Regents Professor designation from The Texas A&M University System Board of Regents.

Established in 1996, the Regents Professor title honors individuals at the rank of professor or equivalent whose distinguished performance in teaching, research, and service has been exemplary. It is the highest honor bestowed by The System on faculty members.

“It’s difficult to find the words to express how deeply honored and grateful I am to Chancellor Sharp, the Board of Regents and Texas A&M University for this award,” said Bowersox. “During my tenure at Texas A&M, I have been truly blessed by unwavering support, outstanding collaborations with colleagues and, most importantly, very brilliant students.”

Bowersox is a professor in the aerospace engineering department and an associate dean for research. He is the holder of the Ford Motor Co. Design Professorship I and is the founder and director of the Texas A&M University National Aerothermochemistry and Hypersonics Laboratory. His research focuses on theoretical and experimental hypersonic viscous flows (turbulent and transitional), nonequilibrium gas dynamics, turbulence modeling, laser diagnostics, high-speed aerodynamics, sonic boom and scramjet flows.

Bowersox received his doctoral, master’s and bachelor’s degrees from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.­­ He is a Department of Defense Vannevar Bush Faculty Fellow, a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and a Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.
